Hosts Ireland will play their second ODI of the tri-nation series as they face New Zealand scheduled to be held today (Sunday) Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin.
The match kicks off at 3.45 pm (BST).
The signs from Ireland's bowlers were promising in the 31.1 overs possible in the first ODI. Their seamers were accurate and had Bangladesh stuttering at 70 for 4 at one point. That means Ireland are unlikely to tinker with their bowling combination. If Ed Joyce recovers from the back problem that kept him out of the series opener, he'll slot back in for Stuart Thompson.
The New Zealand selectors have shown faith not just in Tom Latham's sound technique, but also his leadership. He will be able to turn to Taylor for experience but elsewhere there will be a new-look to the side. Neil Wagner could make his ODI debut after 32 Test appearances and Hamish Bennett is in line for his first appearance since 2014.
The pitch was very green for the Bangladesh game which could mean legspinner
Ish Sodhi misses out. Luke Ronchi is set for another chance as opener.
Earlier on Friday, persistence rain in Malahide washed out the tri-series' opener game between Bangladesh and Ireland after the visitors' innings came to a halt in the 32nd over. Bangladesh were 157 for 4 in 31.1 overs when the weather forced them off, and they did not return.
Although the rain relented as the evening progressed, it never entirely stopped. The game was called off at 4.50 pm local time.
Ireland (probable) : Ed Joyce/Stuart Thompson,  Paul Stirling,  William Porterfield (capt),  Andy Balbirnie,  Niall O'Brien (wk),  Gary Wilson,  Kevin O'Brien,  George Dockrell,  Barry McCarthy,  Tim Murtagh,  Peter Chase
New Zealand (probable) :  Tom Latham (capt),  Luke Ronchi (wk),  George Worker,  Ross Taylor, Neil Broom, James Neesham,  Colin Munro,  Mitchell Santner,  Neil Wagner,  Seth Rance,  Hamish Bennett
Remaining fixture of Tri nation series.
