Bangladesh are all set to kick off their Champions Trophy mission with a high voltage clash with hosts England, on Thursday. Ahead of the tournament former Bangladesh cricketer Khaled Mahmud Sujan is hopeful that Bangladesh would do well in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. [বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ দুটি ম্যাচে জিততে চান সুজন]
Talking about the teams, Bangladesh will face in the group stage of the Champions Trophy, Sujan admitted that his side are in a hard group and all three opponents they will play against are strong. But in the meantime he also said his side were capable of beating them.
“I would say, we are in a hard group. All three opponents are strong. But I wouldn’t say they are unbeatable. We beat them earlier and that proves we are capable of beating England, Australia and New Zealand. So you can’t say we wouldn’t be able to beat them this time,” Sajan said.
He further added, “Also I wouldn’t say we don’t have any chance in the Champions Trophy. I am hopeful that, we would win two matches. But it is not possible to predict exactly which two teams would that be.”
However, the former Bangladesh all-rounder is little bit concerned about the English condition as his team are going to play any international match in that condition after a long time.
“I believe we have both chance and possibility of winning and we have the capability of execute that in the games. But we have to keep in mind that the condition is not in our favor. Our players went to England after a long time. I can’t even even remember when was the last time we went there before this tour. So it wouldn’t be wise to predict anything,” Sujan signed off.
