Bangladesh reached Belfast yesterday afternoon to play the Tri-nation series, also involving hosts Ireland and New Zealand. The series is scheduled to begin from May 12 with the match between Bangladesh and Ireland at Dublin.

After 10-day long conditioning camp in Sussex, the Bangladesh team sans skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza landed Belfast. Mashrafe later joined the side along with team manager Jalal Yunus with whom he boarded the flight from Bangladesh after accompanying his ailing wife and babies. 
The 17-member Bangladesh team’s journey towards Belfast from Sussex however was delayed by two hours due to a technical problem of the plane. The Bangladesh team though sat at their seat, the flight authority told them to get down because of checking the technical problems. Thereafter they waited for two hours at the Gatwick Airport, informed team’s logistic manager Sabbir Khan. 
The team finally reached Belfast at 4.20 pm as per Bangladesh time. In their 10-day long  camp in Sussex in a bid to accilimatise the condition, the Bangladesh played two practice matches, one of which against Duke of Norfolk was washed out due to inclement weather. Thanks to an unbeaten 98 ball-134 from stand in captain Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh compiled a huge total of 345 for seven. Norfolk was 95 for no loss in 19 overs and indicated a tough fight for Bangladesh before the rain brought a premature end to the game in what was believed to be an exciting warm-up match.
Bangladesh however beat Sussex Junior side by 134 runs in the second warm-up game in which most of the batsmen showed their hungriness to score runs. 
However before arriving to the Belfast, the whole Bangladesh team was invited for lunch in the team’s fielding coach Richard Halsall’s house in England. Bangladesh team member Sabbir Rahman posted a photo on his facebook page after having lunch in Halsall’s house.
After the Tri-nation series in which each team will face off each team twice, Bangladesh will return to England on May 24 to play the ICC Champions Trophy.
