Bangladesh and Ireland, both teams are ready to face each other on the cricket field in Bangladesh for playing a single test in the month of April 2023. Bangladesh vs Ireland Test match 2023 will be contested at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur from 4–8 April 2023. It's going to be Ireland's fourth Test match overall and the team's first since meeting England at Lord's in 2019.
Although competing in Asian environments will surely be difficult for the Ireland team, the players' growth will benefit greatly from the experience given that they will be performing a lot more cricket in Asia in the next few years. Ireland has never before undergone a veteran trip of this extent, therefore this visit signifies a new development in their relationship.
Regardless of the obstacles of a hectic international schedule, the BCB and Cricket Ireland have a friendly and good connection, and the two boards have coordinated together to plan this bilateral meeting.
In terms of head-to-head in Test cricket, this series will be the debut test series between both teams as they have not played any test match against each other. Overall, Bangladesh has appeared in 136 test matches in which they came out victorious in 16 matches and lost 102 matches while 18 tests have been drawn. On the other hand, Ireland is a newbie in test cricket with experience of only 3 test matches and they lost all of them.
Bangladesh's highest total in test cricket is 638 runs which came against Sri Lank at Galle International Stadium, Galle, Sri Lanka on 8 March 2013. On the other hand, Ireland’s highest score in test cricket is 339 runs which came against Pakistan at The Village, Dublin, Ireland on 11 May 2018. Eventually, Ireland is lacking some experience in test cricket in comparison to Bangladesh but they are skilled enough to change the mood of the game any time, so it would be exciting to watch both teams fight against each other.
