Mark Adair congratulated after taking one of his four wickets (Ray Lawrence)
Ireland lost a last-ball thriller against Bangladesh to lose the series 2-0 at Chelmsford. Half centuries for Paul Stirling, Lorcan Tucker and Andy Balbirnie had them in control of a pursuit of 274, but the dismissal of Harry Tector (45) produced a wobble as Mustafizur (4-44) produced a fine death display to deny them a deserved win. Earlier Mark Adair took four wickets, with two apiece for spinners George Dockrell and Andy McBrine in a fine bowling effort.
2nd ODI: Ireland lost to Bangladesh by 3 wickets
Chelmsford, England, 12 May.
Ireland 319/6 (45 overs: Harry Tector 140, George Dockrell 74*, Andrew Balbirnie 42, Mark Adair 20*; Hassan Mahmud 2-48, Shoriful Islam 2-83)
Bangladesh 320/7 (44.3 overs: Najmul Shanto 117, Towhid Hridoy 68, Mushfiqur Rahim 36*, Shakib Al Hasan 26, Litton Das 21; Curtis Campher 2-37, George Dockrell 2-52) (Match reduced to 45 overs pre-start.)
Harry Tector scored 140 (CI)
Harry Tector's 140 was in vain as Bangladesh chased 320 to win by 3 wickets in the final over of a thrilling game at Chelmsford. Tector hit an Irish record 10 sixes in his innings, sharing stands of 98 with Andy Balbirnie (42) and 115 for the 6th wicket in 11.2 overs with George Dockrell, whose unbeaten 74 included 3 fours and 4 sixes. Shanto's brilliant century, sharing a partnership of 131 with Towhid Hridoy (68) put Bangladesh in the ascendancy, but the Irish kept chipping away. George Dockrell took two wickets - his 300th and 301st across all formats - and if Paul Stirling had taken a catch at slip, or Mushfiqur not survive two tight third umpire calls - one for a run out, another for a no-ball catch called for height - then the final result may have been different.
1st ODI: Ireland v Bangladesh - no result.

Bangladesh 246/9 (50 overs: Mushifiqur Rahim 61, Najmul Hossain 44; Josh Little 3-61, Graham Hume 2-32, Mark Adair 2-44)
Ireland 65/3 (16.3 overs: Harry Tector 21*, Stephen Doheny 17)
