Bangladesh paced the chase perfectly, with Nigar Sultana top scoring with an excellent 46. It was a shame that she fell just short of her fifty, although it did take a brilliant catch to dismiss her. It just seemed that whenever the run-rate was starting to get out of hand, a boundary would come. Ireland will be disappointed to have not taken any more wickets, although it was a great way to start this series.

the good news is that we won't have to wait long until the next game. Tomorrow we move to Malahide, starting at 11am. So please join me then, this is Justin Smyth saying goodnight from a sunlit YMCA ground.
