MNA Sports Desk: After Sabbir Rahman’s unbeaten century in the first innings, Bangladesh bowlers played enthralling spells destroying Ireland Wolves for 195 in their warm-up match on Thursday.

In the first innings, Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal made a solid start with 86 runs off 76 balls after another opener Soumya Sarkar was dismissed at 44-run opening partnership.

Bangladesh blaster Sabbir Rahman made 100 from 86 balls with 16 fours and a sole six leading Bangladesh score to 394 for 7 wickets.

Shakib Al Hasan blasted 44 off 27 balls when Mosaddek Hossain scored 31 from 27 balls, Mushfiqur Rahim 41 off 24, Mahmudulla 49 off 31.

The Tigers are playing the one-off practice match against Ireland Wolves ahead of the Ireland Tri-nation Series starting at Malahide in Dublin on May 12. New Zealand is another nation taking part in the Tri-nation Series.

Bangladesh will play the host Ireland in the Tri-Nation Series opening match at Malahide in Dublin. Both sides will play again at the same venue on May 19.

In their remaining matches, Bangladesh will face New Zealand twice at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin on May 17 and 24.

Mashrafe will miss the first match of the Ireland Tri-nation series against the hosts as he was suspended for one ODI due to a slow over-rate during the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo in April.
