Thereby, the two teams split the points which took Bangladesh to the top of the points table with six points, followed by West Indies who are now on five points from two games. Ireland now has two points.
The match officials waited till 7.15pm Bangladesh time before making the decision as the rain did not show any intention to stop. For much of the morning and afternoon, the rain continued, making it difficult to start the game.
The toss also didn't take place as the rain began soon after the teams arrived at the venue. Thursday’s game would have been the first meeting between Bangladesh and Ireland in two years.
Bangladesh crushed West Indies by eight wickets in their first match while the Caribbean side defeated Ireland by 196-runs in the tri-series opener.
In double-league tournament, Ireland will now take on West Indies in the fourth game of the tri-nation series, also in Malahide, on Saturday.
The weather forecast is much better for that game.
