Title aspirants Pakistan would look to ensure a Super Eight berth by topping their pool when they take on minnows Bangladesh in their final Group D clash of the ICC World Twenty20 cricket tournament here on Tuesday.
Pakistan and Bangladesh have clashed five times since the inception of the format and the former has always emerged victorious in the slam-bang battles.
Mushfiquir RahimIt is Twenty20, and England were bowled out last night for 80 [against India]. Who would have thought? Pakistan are good but not unbeatable. If we play our best cricket tomorrow, if everyone puts their hands up and shows guts anything is possible. We know where we have to improve and to how go about it tomorrow.
Pakistan, the 2009 World T20 champions, are among the favourites to clinch a second title and led inspiringly by opener Mohammad Hafeez, the team looked every bit a genuine contender in its 14-run triumph over New Zealand in the opening group clash on Sunday.
Stats and Trivia:
Bangladesh have an unflattering record in T20 Cup history having won just 1 of their 10 matches. The lone win came against west Indies, their first match in the 2007 T20 Cup and since then have lost 9 in a row.
Playing Pakistan is a big challenge because their bowling is good but we want to put up our best to qualify for the next round - Mushfiqur Rahim knows the challenge ahead of his team.
We are not thinking that we have already qualified, we have to win against Bangladesh - Mohammad Hafeez has his feet firmly under the ground.
