BD emerge from break with win

The Bangladesh Emerging Team defeated Ireland Wolves by four wickets at Chattogram's Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium as the series got back on track after a Covid-19 scare led to cancellation of the first one-dayer on March 5 when Irish pacer Ruhan Pretorius tested positive.

The results of a Covid-19 test of all players and officials was returned in the middle of the game on March 5. Following further tests on March 6 that showed Pretorius along with all the other players and officials had tested negative, the BCB decided to resume.

Mahmudul Hasan Joy held the innings together with a 95-ball 66 while Saif Hassan struck 36 at the top.
