So Ireland win the game by 6 runs in this 10 over blast. Bangladesh were always struggling to hit boundary, in fact after hitting the first ball to the boundary they couldn't match it in the next 59. Fargana Hoque was the only Bangladesh player who made it into double figures, and a flurry of wickets in the final over meant that they weren't able to push up the runrate.

Lucy O'Reilly was the pick of the bowlers on both teams and her two overs for five runs didn't flatter her in the least.

So with today's result Ireland take a 1-0 lead in the two match series. They great news is that we will only have to wait until tomorrow for the next game. It will be here at Bready and hopefully the weather will play ball and we can get a full 20/20 game in.

Thanks for following my commentary today, although don't go away because at 3:30pm we have the second half of this double header as Ireland's Men play Hong Kong in their T20. So please join us again soon! Bye.
