Ireland failed to pick up a win in the Tri-Nations Series but team captain William Porterfield says it was invaluable Test experience for Mark Adair and James McCollum.

The hosts concluded their campaign in Clontarf where Paul Stirling's eighth one-day international hundred came in a losing cause after Bangladesh chased down their 293 victory target.

Fast bowler Adair and Northern Light’s 23-year-old McCollum made their Irish bows this month and their skipper says the experience will stand to the pair with a busy 2019 schedule.

"I think this month was always going to be something of a learning curve, especially with lads coming in," he told RTÉ Sport.

"They made their debut this month and have played all the games."

"We have done a lot of things well, but it’s about stringing it all together over 100 overs. That’s what we need to do as a team."

A polished batting display from Bangladesh, who take on West Indies in Sunday's final, served to highlight the improvement Ireland need to make with two upcoming games against Afghanistan, a six-game series against Zimbabwe and of course a date at Lords against England later this summer.

"The teams we have played against us have been 15% better than us throughout this series, but that’s where we need to be. They have bigger playing pools, but that’s irrelevant to some degree.

"It shows us where the benchmark is."
