Bangladesh Emerging Team to face off Ireland Wolves in 3rd match tomorrow

Bangladesh Emerging Team will take on visiting

Ireland Wolves tomorrow (Tuesday) in the third one-day game at the Zahur

Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in a bid to continue their winning streak.

The hosts are currently in 1-0 lead in the five-match one-day series,

courtesy to their four-wicket win in the second game. The first match was

called off after an Irish player Ruhan Pretorious was found Covid-19 positive

in review result.

However, while the uncertainty was hovering over the series, all members

and staff of the both teams including Pretorius underwent corona test again

and much to the delight, all of them were tested negative. The series then

went as planned.

Ireland Wolves who are yet to win any match in the series, will try to

level the series, with an aim to keep the hope of series win alive. A defeat

in the third game will block their way to win the series.

Bangladesh Emerging team earlier won the lone four-day game against Ireland

Wolves by an innings and 23-run margin.

After the third game, both teams will travel back to Dhaka where they will

play the fourth and fifth one-day match on March 12 and 14 at Sher-e-Bangla

National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS). They will then play two T20s which will

also be held at the same venue on March 17 and 18.
