Umpire Ian Gould picks up the wickets after play is suspended due to rain during the global between Ireland and Bangladesh at Malahide in Co Dublin.

Ireland captain William Porterfield chose to field first against Bangladesh in the opening match of the ODI tri-series in Dublin.

Mushfiqur Rahim punished Barry McCarthy early in his first spell, before the 24-year-old had his revenge, having Rahim caught at first slip, a sharp catch by Gary Wilson with the visitors on 47 for three in the 12th over.

Soumya was the first victim, caught by NJ O'Brien off Peter Chase bowling while Sabbir was caught by Tim Murtagh also off a Chase's bowling.

3 adjustments to make in Game 6 — Washington Wizards
Bradley, who is playing with a sore hip, scored 25 points in the first half as the Celtics compiled a 22-point half-time lead. Boston led by as many as 26 points, negating Washington's physicality by spreading the floor and knocking down 16 3-pointers.

This pair added an unbroken 87-run stand before the rain arrived- Iqbal with 8 fours in his unbeaten 64 while his partner clipped 4 fours and a six in his 43*.

Chase then took his third wicket, again Niall O'Brien snapping up the caught behind as Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan fell for 14 in the 15th over with the score on 70.

The rain, which had delayed the start by 25 minutes, returned at 1.30pm and just over three hours later with the rain still falling the captains shook hands with both teams taking two points. Stuart Thompson was brought in as the extra seamer on a green Irish wicket.

It had the makings of a good contest in truth but it was the weather that won in the end, and Ireland have to wait now until Sunday and their second match against New Zealand at the same venue (10.45) to look for that all-important victory.
