A persistent rain delayed the toss of the match between Bangladesh and Ireland in the tri-nation series tournament at the Malahide in Dublin today.
A spell of shower just before the three hours of the toss left the ground wet. But a good drainage system meant it got dried up.
An inspection by umpires was scheduled at 3.30PM BST but before that the rain again poured to further delay the toss.
