Action from the second one-dayer between Bangladesh Emerging Team and Ireland Wolves in Chittagong Sunday Cricket Ireland

The first one-dayer at the same venue Friday was called off 30 overs into the first innings after visiting team's Pretorius' positive Covid-19 test was only known once the game got underway

Bangladesh Emerging Team got the better of Ireland Wolves in an exciting finish to the second of five one-dayers at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong as the hosts took a 1-0 lead after a four-wicket win.

The first one-dayer at the same venue Friday was called off 30 overs into the first innings after visiting team's Ruhan Pretorius' positive Covid-19 test was only known once the game got underway.

The two teams, inside bio-secure bubble, were tested again prior to the second one-dayer and all the players received a clean bill of health as Pretorius showed no ill effects from his positive test a couple of days ago, stroking 90 off 125 balls after Ireland Wolves were asked to bat first.

The 30-year old Pretorius first put on 88 alongside other opener James McCollum (41) before adding 85 for the second wicket with Stephen Doheny (37).

The visitors eventually managed 263/7 in their alloted 50 overs.

Right-arm seamer Sumon Khan and left-arm spinner Rakibul Hasan bagged two wickets apiece.

In reply, the home side reached their destination with just two balls remaining, middle-order batsman Mahmudul Hasan Joy leading the chase with his 95-ball 66.

Shamim Hossain (53) saw the game out by remaining unbeaten, while captain Saif Hasan (36), Yasir Ali and Towhid Hridoy (both 31) chipped in with handy contributions.

Ireland Wolves' Ben White picked up two wickets.

The third one-dayer will be held at the same venue tomorrow, before the two teams travel to Dhaka for the fourth and fifth one-dayers, slated for Friday and Sunday at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

Two T20s in Mirpur on March 17 and 18 will conclude the tour that began with a solitary four-dayer that the hosts won inside three days.


BANGLADESH EMERGING 264/6 in 49.4 overs (Joy 66, Shamim 53*) beat IRELAND WOLVES 263/7 (Pretorius 90, McCollum 41) by four wickets
