Champions Trophy: Bangladesh skipper Mortaza wants to play with a free mind

The experienced duo of Iqbal and Rahim put on a magnificent 123-run stand for the third wicket to give Bangladesh a solid start in their first semi-final appearance in the Champions Trophy. Their future looks bright.

Speaking about the high voltage semi final, Kohli said: "We have been in these kind of games before quite few times". They were lucky against Australia when the match washed out.

The tournament in England and Wales has not followed the script in the past week and a half.

However, they will still be wary of Bangladesh, who had entered the last-4 stage on the back of an upset win over New Zealand and had finished second in Group-A.

Most of all, they have a skillful, varied attack that, even on the fine batting surface anticipated at Edgbaston, provides Mashrafe with options.

“Aar ektu upare jete chai (having come all the way, we badly dont want to miss out on a final spot now),” Bashar, who led Bangladesh to their epic 2007 World Cup win over India at Port of Spain, told PTI from Dhaka.

"Asked about the final against their arch-rivals, Rohit said, One last hurdle, a big game against Pakistan". For the players, this is a hard-fought chance to show they belong at this level.

"As we've seen already in this tournament, a lot of teams have surprised the opposition and we're certainly not taking anything for granted", he added.

India topped Group B after impressively seeing off Pakistan and South Africa to advance to the last four, but the defending champions were given a wake-up call in between those wins when suffering a surprise defeat to Sri Lanka.

"So this team has changed. So, it's better for us to focus on the game".

"They have cricketers who are skilled and committed to take the Bangladesh ahead in the tournament. That's the thing, about never giving up on the ground". "That's the biggest thing if you speak of belief". "I know, on our day, we can do anything". Mashrafe accepted his side is in uncharted territory here, but, like his coach the previous day, attempted to alleviate the burden. "And if you look at it as a semi-final, the pressure will be very hard". If you are a premium member, you will be able to watch the match in real-time. Both of them batted till the end and took their team to victory.
