Bangladesh vs Ireland 2nd T20I Highlights-: Bangladesh registered a convincing 77-run win against Ireland in the 2nd T20I at Chittogram to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match T20I series. Ireland collapsed in the chase of 203 as the visitors lost six wickets in first 6 overs of the innings. Shakib Al Hasan was the wrecker-in-chief as he picked a fifer to put Ireland in the backseat. Curtis Campher (50) and Harry Tector (22) were the only batters who showed some fight in the chase as Ireland got restricted to 125/9. Earlier, Litton Das unleashed his fury to slam an 18-ball half-century as Bangladesh posted a mammoth 202 in a rain-hit game. Das scored an 83-run knock and later Shakib and Hridoy unleashed at death to give a challenging total to visitors. Follow BAN vs IRE LIVE updates with InsideSport
