Ireland was better in the sense that they played with the better approach and more heart. They played positively, chased 300 twice successfully

Irish batsmen are way ahead, as they are experienced and get to play county cricket. Bowling BD is ahead imo.

Ireland are much more consistent than us. They probably should have won their match against BD. In Ireland or in neutral venues I think they will have the upper hand over us. Only in Bangladeshi conditions are we better than them. So, taking every thing into account, I would give Ireland 55/100 and Bangladesh 45/100.

We are higher up the ranking, We have beaten them every time we played against them in Bangladesh.

In this worldcup we have beaten the teams that were beaten by Ireland. They played on Batting pitches where they conceded 300 runs more than we did.

Their top order is better and more consistent than our top order but their bowling attack doesn't even come close.

Considering the current form, Ireland will beat us most of the times if we meet in a neutral venue.

Ireland for sure, they have been very consistent in giving fights to the bigger team.

Ireland. They lost to the 12th man, not to the team.

I can see why the smart money is on Ireland. However, I think we should not be comparing Ireland to Bangladesh. Canada is a closer match in terms of personnel. The Irish team is made out of a number of players who have chosen to don the Irish shirt. None of these players could be good enough to feature in their home nation's test or one day international team.

Why should we comparing Ireland to Bangladesh? Many of the so called Irish players would jump at the chance of playing for one of the major test nations. 'All' the Bangladeshi players would jump at playing only for Bangladesh. This is not jingoism speaking but more an accurate reflection of how things are.

Bangladesh had been disappointing in this tournament. This team will get better. Ireland would only get worse as there isn't that much interest for cricket in Irish schools.

Wrong, Cricket in Ireland would only get better and would get more following after beating England. Even their Prime minister acknowledged their achievements. I wouldn't be surprise if they overtake BD in 5 years.

We were able to beat them only because of their unfamiliarity of condition and lack of match practice. On this WC Ireland was a better team. Just add up the total scored runs and wickets taken
