William Porterfield (capt), Alex Cusack, George Dockrell, Trent Johnston, John Mooney, Kevin O'Brien, Niall O'Brien, Andrew Poynter, Boyd Rankin, Paul Stirling, Andrew White, Gary Wilson.

Seems like Nial O'Brien has recovered from the operation. He is a threat against BD along with Rankin.

Coach Phil Simmons was happy with the make-up of the squad despite missing a couple of key players to injuries. "It's more or less as strong a squad as we could wish to have. We are still missing Andre Botha with a back injury, and of course Regan West who has been out all summer. The players know just how vital these games are from a number of viewpoints."

Simmons acknowledged that the series against Bangladesh would be vital to Ireland's development in the game. "There are crucial ranking points at stake as we attempt to climb the ODI table, and it's a good benchmark for us to play the teams close to us. We are looking for a regular diet of international cricket, and good performances in this RSA series can only help us achieve that," he said.

Ireland have put it past Bangladesh in the past and Simmons hoped his side could do likewise again. "We have performed well against Bangladesh in the last two World Cups, beating them in Barbados in 2007, and again last year at Trent Bridge in the World Twenty20. On our own patch and conditions, there's no reason why we can't do it again."

Ireland has been getting lots of practice, won all their games and is at the top of the league.
Very soon, they will compete with BD for the 9th place.
BD has to play out of their skins to beat this team. they nearly beat the mighty Aussies recently.

Pretty good squad. Rankin is going to be tough for our guys to handle.

They way you are saying sounds so weird to hear from a Bangladeshi perspective. Not like we have many openers who can do the job. Tamim is the only one along with Imrul!

We need to deal with Boyd Rankin and Trent Johnstone's rising ball. There is player called Botha, I don't know why he was not picked. Gary Wilson plays for Surrey, very hard working player. And off course get the wicket of Niall, porterfield and Kevin cheaply

Junaid and Imrul opened innings in Ireland against Ireland A in 2008. Did not do well.

we will get a long rest after the series. So Tamim should play. And Ireland isn't minnow for BD. In their home condition they will be tough opponent. Netherland is also good side if RT Doschete play.
