Former Bangladesh captain Khaled Mahmud Sujon believes that Bangladesh can beat any side on any given day. If Bangladesh do so, it won’t be a fluke.
“In our day, we can beat any team. We have that ability. It’s not a fluke. By formulating game plan, Bangladesh can beat their opponent side,” he said.
Bangladesh will start their Champions Trophy campaign on June 1 against the host side England on the opening day at The Oval in London. BCB director and its game development committee chairman Sujon thinks the Tigers have to play their best to beat the in-form English side.
“We’ll definitely have a plan against England how we can beat them. I think we have to play our best brand of cricket. If we could execute in the field according to our planning I think Bangladesh will have chance to move forward in Champions Trophy.”
Bangladesh have won ten out of twenty ODIs against top-eight nations since the World Cup. They have beaten teams like Pakistan, India, South Africa, England, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. So according to Sujon, it definitely won’t be a fluke if Bangladesh manage to beat a top-side in the Champions Trophy. The Tigers also have Australia and New Zealand in the Group A as opponents.
