Taskin Ahmed set to miss Ireland ODI series

Dhaka: Taskin Ahmed's preparation for Cricket World Cup 2023 has taken a hit with the fast bowler out of Bangladesh's Super League ODI series against Ireland in May.

The quick missed Bangladesh's sole Test match against Ireland with a side strain, the same injury that will sideline him for the three 50-over matches in Chelmsford from May 9.

While the series is a good chance for Bangladesh to fine tune ahead of the Cricket World Cup having already qualified via their strong Super League campaign, the matches are make-or-break for Ireland, who need to win all three encounters to keep automatic qualification for India 2023 alive.

Bangladesh ODI squad:
Tamim Iqbal (c), Litton Das (wk), Rony Talukdar, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Yasir Ali, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury

Three victories would take Ireland to 98 points, level with South Africa, currently positioned in the last automatic qualification spot.

The teams would also be level on wins, meaning Ireland also have to improve their net run rate from -0.382 to -0.076 or better to overtake the Proteas.

Teams finishing in 9th to 13th at the end of Super League move to the ten-team Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe, beginning on 18 June.
