Ireland will have to be at their “very best” to beat Bangladesh in Saturday’s one-day opener in Sylhet (08:00 GMT), says all-rounder Harry Tector.

The hosts are ranked seventh in the world and also boast a formidable white-ball home record, which includes the recent T20 series win over England.

“Bangladesh are playing some really good cricket,” said Tector, 23.

“Their home form is really impressive so it is certainly going to be a challenge to get results out here.”

He added: “But if we play well and how we can, we can certainly get good results.

“We are certainly playing really good one-day cricket at the minute and I think everyone is enjoying how we are trying to play, we are trying to play positively and take the game on.”
