Bangladesh were on the way to surpass their previous highest T20 total of 215, when rain cut short their innings after two balls of the twentieth over. There were two wickets for Craig Young on his comeback, with one each for Mark Adair, Harry Tector and Graham Hume. All came at a price however, as Bangladesh cleared the ropes on eight occasions, something that Ireland would fail to do even once when their turn came to bat. The rain gave Ireland a chance of an upset, their target in the 8 overs that were ultimately possible, was 104. Certainly a tough ask, but certainly much better than their chances were of scoring 208 in 20. Paul Stirling blasted 18 off Nasum Ahmed's opening over, and Ross Adair took 13 off Mustafizur Rahman's second, to raise Irish hopes, but that was as good as it got for Ireland, as Taskin removed Tucker, Stirling and Dockrell in the fourth over. He returned to bowl the final over for only nine runs and claiming Tector as his fourth wicket, leaving Ireland 22 runs adrift on the DLS calculation.
