Ireland to host New Zealand and Bangladesh in tri-series.

The six-match series will help New Zealand and Bangladesh acclimatise ahead of their participation in the ICC Champions Trophy, which takes place in England in June 2017. 

Ireland today confirmed further one-day internationals against Full Members with the news that New Zealand and Bangladesh will play a tri-series with Ireland in May 2017. 
The sides will all play two matches apiece in the six match series, helping New Zealand and Bangladesh acclimatize ahead of their participation in the ICC Champions Trophy which takes place in England next June.


We have ODI’s scheduled against SriLanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Australia, South Africa, Bangladesh and New Zealand over the next year at least. Those series will give us an excellent idea of where we at in terms of progression. With home advantage in at least 13 ODI’s in that period we’ll certainly have plenty of opportunities to test ourselves against quality opposition.



Said, the head coach of Ireland John Bracewell
Ireland and New Zealand have played only two ODI’s in the decade since Ireland gained ODI status. The ‘Black Caps’ winning both – in Guyana in 2007 and Aberdeen the following year.
Ireland have met Bangladesh seven times in ODI’s, including matches at the 2007 and 2011 World Cups. They last met in Ireland in 2010, when a William Porterfield century helped Ireland to a one-all drawn series.
