Rain delays the toss between Bangladesh vs Ireland


DHAKA, May 9, 2019 (BSS)- A persistent rain delayed the toss of the match between Bangladesh and Ireland in the tri-nation series tournament at the Malahide in Dublin today.

A spell of shower just before the three hours of the toss left the ground wet. But a good drainage system meant it got dried up.

An inspection by umpires was scheduled at 3.30PM BST but before that the rain again poured to further delay the toss.

Bangladesh came into the match with a thumping eight-wicket win over West Indies. Ireland however tasted a humiliating 196-run defeat to West Indies and need to win the game against Bangladesh to keep their hopes to move into the final alive.

Bangladesh can make a giant leap towards the final if they win the match. The Tigers are likely to come up in the match with unchanged squad that won the match against West Indies.
