Ireland won the toss and elected to bowl first in the second game of the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Wednesday.
No changes for Bangladesh, says Shakib. Ireland have brought in Fionn Hand (bowling allrounder) for Craig Young (fast bowler).
The Tigers are currently leading the series by a 1-0 margin after they registered a 22-run in the D/L method during the series opener at the same venue on Monday.
Bangladesh showcased a brilliant performance both with the bat and ball as they scored 207-5 after being sent into bat first before they defended the revised target of 104 runs quite easily at the end.
The Tigers earlier won the preceding three-match ODI series against the same opposition by a 2-0 margin while before coming into the series, they also beat world champions England by a 3-0 margin in a three-match T20I series.
