Shakib, Towhid fifties take tigers to 338-8 against Ireland

Bangladesh scored 338 for eight against Ireland in Saturday's first match of three one-day internationals in Sylhet.

Brief scores from the first innings of the first one-day international between Bangladesh and Ireland at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Saturday:

Bangladesh 338-8, 50 overs (Shakib Al Hasan 93, Towhid Hridoy 92, Mushfiqur Rahim 44; G. Hume 4-60)

Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal returned after overcoming a viral infection that had put him in doubt for the match.

But the hosts had to drop all-rounder Mehidy Hasan after a training injury to his eyes on Friday.

Ireland, who will also play three Twenty20 internationals and a Test during their tour, last visited Bangladesh for a bilateral series in 2008.

The remaining ODIs will be played in Sylhet on Monday and Thursday.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal (capt), Liton Das, Najmul Hossain, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Yasir Ali, Towhid Hridoy, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman

Ireland: Andrew Balbirnie (capt), Mark Adair, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Stephen Doheny, Graham Hume, Andrew McBrine, Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker
