Ireland's women ended their season on a disappointing note as their batting collapse allowed Bangladesh to level the one-day series in Belfast.
Needing a paltry 107 for victory, Ireland looked in total control as Cecelia Joyce (35) and Meg Kendal (25) produced an opening stand of 52.
However Kendal's dismissal sparked a turnaround at Shaw's Bridge as Ireland were bowled out for 96.
Rumana Ahmed claimed a hat-trick as six Irish batswomen failed to score.
Skipper Laura Delany scored 26 as the wickets tumbled around her.
Earlier, Amy Kenealy's (4-32) opening burst had reduced Bangladesh to 25 for 5, before opener Sanjida Islam (33), with the help of the lower order, staged a recovery of sorts to post 106.
The teams share the series 1-1 after Ireland's victory earlier in the week.
