Bangladesh cricket team completed their preparations for the first round of the T20 World Cup with a 33-run defeat against Ireland in Abu Dhabi Thursday, suffering two losses in as many official practice matches.

The Tigers had also lost to Sri Lanka by four wickets Tuesday in the first practice match, and the latest result against the Irish will raise some alarms in the Bangladesh camp, ahead of their first round opener against Scotland Sunday in Muscat.

Batting first, the Irish posted a challenging 177/3 in 20 overs, No 3 batsman Gareth Delany remaining unbeaten at the end with a 50-ball 88, featuring three fours and eight sixes.

Delany put on 99 for the unbroken fourth wicket stand with Harry Tector, who was not out on a run-a-ball 23.

Bangladesh bowlers failed to contain the Irish flow of runs as left-arm seamers Mustafizur Rahman and Shariful Islam both went for 10 runs per over in their combined eight overs.

Right-arm pacer Taskin Ahmed bagged two wickets conceding 26 runs in his quota of four overs, while left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed picked up the other wicket to fall, but also went for 11 per over in his three overs.

Off-spinner Mahedi Hasan was the most economical Bangladesh bowler leaking only 15 runs in his three overs.

In pursuit of 178, Bangladesh batsmen had another underwhelming day after the Sri Lanka loss as they were dismissed for 144 in 20 overs.

Openers Mohammad Naim (three) and Liton Das (one) were both dismissed cheaply while middle-order batsman Mushfiqur Rahim got out for just four.

No 3 batsman Soumya Sarkar was among the runs with a 30-ball 37, to follow up his 34 against the Lankans, while wicketkeeper-batsman Nurul Hasan top-scored with a 24-ball 38, including half a dozen boundaries.

Having missed the Sri Lanka game with back pain, regular captain Mahmudullah also sat out the Ireland match.
