BAN VS IRE, ICC Cricket World Cup, 9th Match, Group B: Bangladesh vs Ireland at Dhaka, Feb 25, 2011

Bangladesh might have lost to Ireland in the world events, but they will take heart from having beaten them 3-0 the only time they have met each other in Bangladesh. A similar trap - a low and slow pitch - is likely to be laid. Given the conditions will obviously suit the Bangladesh spin army, and the kind of crowd that this match will attract - something Ireland will never have encountered before - the hosts will start favourites. That said, it will be tough to keep a spirited side down, a side that gets one chance in four years to show the world what it is capable of. That is motivation enough.

Shakib knows, though, that spin will be the way to win. "When they played at Mirpur in 2008, we beat them three games in a row," Shakib said. "So we have the home advantage. I don't think they like to play in these conditions. Hopefully we will come off good in tomorrow's game.
