Ireland progress in Twenty20 World Cup
Ireland's O'Brien brothers today carried their country past Bangladesh to the Super Eights stage of the World Twenty20.
Kevin and Niall hit 79 runs between them at Trent Bridge as Ireland passed 137 for eight, with 10 balls and six wickets to spare, inflicting Bangladesh's second defeat in three days and sending the Tigers out of the tournament.
For Ireland, it was famous confirmation of the superiority they demonstrated over these same Test-playing opponents in a 74-run win at the World Cup in the Caribbean two years ago.
They have since come up short in a three-match one-day international series in Dhaka - but with eight of the class of 2007 still staffing today's team, there could be no argument that Ireland had again deserved their victory on the big stage.
