Match Centre

For the second day running its a last over win for Bangladesh, completing their second 4 wicket win of the tour. Shamima Sultana and Fargana Hoque set the platform and even though there was a clatter of wickets at the end, the Irish total was never going to be enough to challenge Bangladesh Plus smashing the ball over the boundary is always a nice way to finish the match. With that Bangladesh take a 2-0 lead in the series, with only one game to go means that they have won the series.

The final game will be this Sunday, 2pm at Sydney Parade in Dublin. So hopefully you'll join me then. As Malahide gets ready for the other part of today's double header. This is Justin Smyth saying goodbye for now.

Richardson to Sanjida Islam, SIX runs, That's it, its all over! Its a good length ball and it's in the right place for Islam. She swings hard at the ball and pulls it over the square leg boundary. The Umpires have to check with the Tv camera's,just made it over the rope

  • Laura Delany4-0-21-2

6 needed off 6 balls, its going to be another tight one. Could we be seeing a superover coming up? Richardson to bowl the final over

IMHC Joyce to Sanjida Islam, 1 run, looks to pull the ball into the legside, didn't get a great connection on the ball and it dribbles square on the leg-side
IMHC Joyce to Jahanara Alam, 1 run, hits the ball hard down to long-on, hit it very hard for not much reward

Can Alam win this game with her bat this time?

IMHC Joyce to Fahima Khatun, OUT, its a full straight ball from Isobel, the ball goes through the gate and the stumps are broken again. Yet another twist in the tail?

Fahima Khatun b IMHC Joyce 2 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

IMHC Joyce to Sanjida Islam, 1 run, cuts the ball to backward point, sneak another run
IMHC Joyce to Sanjida Islam, 1 wide, too far outside off-stump again, Ireland can't afford to give an extra's here
