The second one-day international between Ireland and Bangladesh in May – part of the World Cup Super League series – will now start at 10.45am.

The match in Chelmsford, was initially scheduled to begin at 2pm, however, to ensure the match timings were conducive to viewers in Bangladesh as well as in Ireland/UK for all matches, it was decided to make the change to the earlier start time.

South Africa's convincing wins over Netherlands last week mean an already difficult task of qualifying automatically is now near impossible.

Not only would Heinrich Malan's side have to win all three games, but by a margin of 85 runs/17 overs approx in each of them.

Ireland will instead barring a miracle be taking part in the World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe, wherre ten teams will battle it out for the two remaining slots in the finals in India.
