Bangladesh vs Ireland
1st T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 27 March, 01:30 PM (IST)
Series: 1st T20 Match
Venue: Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium – Chittagong, Bangladesh
BAN vs IRE Dream11 Prediction:
- Najmul Hossain Shanto was dismissed only once across the IT20 series against England. He is our pick for Bangladesh’s highest run scorer in this game. Taskin Ahmed has taken 40 wickets in this format and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Bangladesh’s top wicket taker against Ireland.
- Paul Stirling has a top score of 115 not out in this format and the right-handed opener is a strong choice for Ireland’s highest run scorer against Bangladesh. Graham Hume finished as the top wicket taker across both sides in the ODIs and he is our tip for Ireland’s top wicket taker in this match.
- There is no other batter in Bangladesh in such good form as Najmul Hossain Shanto. We recommend backing him to hit over 31.5 runs in this IT20.
BAN vs IRE Live Streaming:
This match will be live on Gazi TV and Willow TV online.
Fans can watch the live action on the FanCode App.
Weather & Pitch Report:
It will be partly cloudy and very humid across Monday afternoon in Chittagong. However, no rain is forecast during this opening IT20.
The ball is most likely to skid through on this surface as opposed to bounce high. We expect turn for the spinners and a par score no higher than 155.
The last three IT20s have been won by the team batting second at this venue. We predict that both skippers will want to field first if they win the toss.

BAN vs IRE TEAM NEWS:
BAN Team News:
Alan Donald’s side have been growing in confidence as the victories have come thick and fast in white ball internationals this month. There are no injury worries in the squad and their knowledge of the home conditions will also be crucial in this match.
IRE Team News:
With Barry McCarthy injured and Josh Little unavailable for this tour, Ireland will again be slightly under-strength in the bowling department in this game. However, with the bat, it will be interesting to see how the attacking pair of Paul Stirling and Ross Adair get on opening together at this level for the first time.

Even with their first choice bowling attack, it would be a very tough prospect for Ireland to travel to Bangladesh and win an IT20 series. We are expecting a low-scoring game with boundaries particularly hard to hit as the ball softens in the final five overs of an innings. With their confidence at a very high level, we expect Bangladesh to be the better team with bat and ball. Overall, we are predicting a convincing victory for Bangladesh.
Bangladesh are favorites to beat Ireland
BAN Key Players:
Najmul Hossain Shanto
the left-handed top order batter is in the form of his life. Against England he hit 51, 46 not out and 47 not out in this format earlier in the month.
Shakib Al Hasan
the skipper is one of the best left-arm spinners in T20 cricket and very rarely goes for many runs. He is also a very useful batter in all formats and hit 93 against Ireland in the opening ODI.
the right arm pace bowler has been in excellent form against Ireland and England. He picked up five wickets from two innings against Ireland in the ODIs.
IRE Key Players:
the opener has a good record in the shortest format and has played in nearly all of the top T20 leagues. He is a very attacking player.
the 26 year old keeper-batter has hit all five of his IT20 half-centuries over the last 16 months. His top score in this format is 84.
the right-arm fast medium bowler was the only player in the Irish bowling attack to emerge from the ODI series with any credit. He will have the most confidence with the ball in the Ireland squad ahead of this game.
BAN vs IRE Team Form:
BAN Team Form
Bangladesh have been in excellent form across all formats and are looking for their fourth successive victory in IT20s after thrashing England 3-0.
IRE Team Form
Since beating eventual winners England in the 2022 T20 World Cup, Ireland have won only one of their next six IT20s.
