Bangladesh fast bowlers came all guns blazing to take all 10 wickets for the first time in the country’s ODI cricket history as Ireland was bundled out for just 101 runs in 28.1 career

Young prodigy Hasan Mahmud led the charge, showing an emphatic performance that saw him returning figures of 5-32, his career-best and first five-for in his small career.

Taskin Ahmed claimed 3-36 and Ebadot Hossain snapped up 2-29 to play a perfect foil to Hasan.

Bangladeshi pacers earlier on multiple occasion took highest eight wickets of the opponents with the last instance which came against Pakistan at Lord's during the 2019 World Cup.

Bangladesh won the first game by 183 runs for its largest ever victory while the second match was washed out after the hosts put up its ODI highest total 349-6.

After electing to bat first in the overcast condition, Ireland batter looked clueless against the Bangladesh pacers and surrendered literally without any resistance.

Only two batters of Ireland could reach double digit mark with Curtis Campher making highest 36 and Lorcan Tucker adding 28.

Hasan ran through Ireland top order with a gem of pace bowling and left them 22-3 before Taskin Ahmed got into act.
