Winning the second and final ODI match by 6 wickets, Bangladesh cricket team could level the 2 ODI series against Ireland 1-1. Bangladesh could also take their revenge of losing the opening match against the host country on Friday. Because of some rain, the match was reduced to 46-over in each side.

Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal and Shafiul Islam played an important role behind this victory. With the bat, Tamim Iqbal scored 91-ball 74 that helped his team to ensure victory. On the other hand, seam bowler, Shafiul Islam, took his career best 4 wickets for 55 runs that did not allow Ireland to make enormous score.

In a rain interrupted ODI match, Irish captain decided to bat first after winning the toss. They scored 189 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in their allotted 46 overs.

Ireland captain, William Porterfield, who scored century in the first ODI, got dismissed early scoring only 6 runs from 19 balls. Ireland was put under huge pressure after losing three wickets for 28. Niall O'Brien inspired them hitting some boundaries, but he was soon dismissed.

A big innings from Gary Wilson helped his team to make a semi-respectable score. He made 44-run partnership with Andrew White in the sixth wicket. However, Gary Wilson was the highest run scorer in the Ireland team scoring 60 from 64 balls.

John Mooney played a quick innings of 28 but he could not make it longer as he was dismissed early.
