Bangladesh vs Ireland: ICC World T20, Match 6 - Players to watch out for

Dharamsala: Bangladesh take on Ireland in Match 8 of ICC World Twenty20 to be played at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Stadium.

While it's a must-win game for Ireland after being stunned by Oman in their first match, Bangladesh would want to follow their 8-wicket win against Netherlands with yet another victory.

Here are the players to watch out for from both the teams:

Shakib Al Hasan: He is Bangladesh's biggest cricketing star and after a quiet show in the recently concluded Asia Cup 2016, team would bank on their seasoned campaigner for a good show against Ireland.

Mashrafe Mortaza: The fact that his team is playing the qualifiers is a matter of huge embarrassment for him, and Mortaza would want to bowl a match-winning spell against Ireland to get The Tigers a step closer to the main stage.

Kevin O'Brien: He has played some of the most fascinating knocks for the team in the past, and the onus would be on him to hit a formidable knock in the middle-order.

Tim Murtagh: Bangladesh have an in-form top-order and getting wickets would be the key for Ireland. Murtagh will have to get early breakthroughs to keep the team's hopes alive in the tournament.
