Ireland lose thrilling ODI to Bangladesh as Harry Tector's century comes in vain at Chelmsford

Ireland lose one-day international thriller to Bangladesh at Chelmsford as Tigers chase down 320 to clinch three-wicket win with three balls to spare; Ireland's Harry Tector slams national-record 10 sixes in his innings of 140 from 113 balls.

Harry Tector's career-best 140 came in vain for Ireland as they lost a high-scoring ODI thriller to Bangladesh by three wickets at Chelmsford.

Tector's fourth hundred in his last nine one-day internationals propelled Ireland to 319-6 in a game reduced to 45 overs a side following earlier rain, before Bangladesh reached their target with three balls to spare.

Tector, 23, plundered 10 sixes - the most by an Irishman in an ODI innings - during his 113-ball knock, while George Dockrell struck four maximums in his unbeaten 74 from 47 deliveries.

 
 

Ireland reduced Bangladesh to 40-2 in the reply before Najmul Hossain Shanto (117) helped his side to 232-3 in the 34th over.

Three further wickets before the 40-over mark gave Ireland hope - Shanto caught by Tector off Curtis Campher - and there was a dramatic finale with Bangladesh requiring four runs from Mark Adair's last four balls.

Adair had Mushfiqur Rahim caught from the next delivery but it was deemed a no ball on height grounds and Mushfiqur ramped the free hit to the boundary to put the Tigers 1-0 up in the three-match series with one game remaining.

 

Tuesday's series opener ended in a no-result because of rain.
