The Irish international cricket team is hosting the Bangla Tigers for a 3-match ODI series which is a part of the Super League. All three games will be played at the County Ground, Chelmsford. The first game of the series ended with no result as the rain had some other plans. Here is County Ground Chelmsford Pitch Report for IRE vs BAN 2nd ODI.
Earlier this year Ireland toured Bangladesh for a 3-match ODI and T20I series concluding with a Test match. The hosts dominated the Irish team during the whole tour as they only lost a single game combining all three formats.
Ireland is now hosting Bangladesh for a 3-match One-day series and they have an amazing opportunity to take revenge. Ireland does have a side that can beat the Tamim and Co. They will have some firepower in their bowling with the inclusion of Joshua Litttle who was busy in the ongoing IPL 2023.
County Ground of Chelmsford will host all three games of the series. However, the first ODI has been washed off all eyes will be on the 2nd ODI taking place on 12th May.

County Ground Chelmsford Pitch Report
Despite the rain in the first ODI 66 overs were bowled at the County Ground. In the whole innings, the pacers had their nose in front as the wicket was offering a lot of lateral movement off the pitch. It will be a tough test for the opening batsman to play with the new ball on this surface.
Run scoring is comparatively easy on this wicket once the ball gets old. Spinners do have some assistance with this wicket as well during the middle overs.
