Please check the history of Ireland and exxactly how much support they get from England. Will clear out a few details for you. Plus, BD has similar situation as Pakistan when it comes to passion. Sometimes there's too much, sometimes there little. So far, we have seen the second one on display against WI and during the batting against Ireland. We bowled and fielded really well against Ireland and also did not do too bad during our batting against India.

Ireland is a good side, but, they will get blown away by India/England if it were a regular match. The pressure of qualifying played a huge role in both sides restrained performance against them.

Having said all that, if we don't start the nepotism in our team selection and take away the focus from the domestic championships, Ireland (and Afghans) will shoot past us in ODIs. It all depends on some real leadership inside BCB.
