Despite being clubbed in a very tough group with England, Australia and New Zealand, Bangladesh have very good chance to surpass the group level, and at least play at the semifinal stage of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy in England and Wales. [বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ বাংলাদেশের সেমিফাইনাল খেলা উচিত]
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB)’s director and its game development committee chairman Khaled Mahmud Sujon said this while talking to the journalists on Sunday.
“I think we should play at semifinal stage though like others I will say that we have been drawn in the tough group. But I think this is our level,” said Sujon.
“You can’t say that the group Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan have been clubbed that’s an easy group. On the other hand, Australia, England and New Zealand are in the group that’s a tough group,” he told media.
“Actually we’re in a level where we play. Now we’re sixth in rankings. So we’ve to play with the top-level teams. I think there is no chance to show any excuse. We’ve to play with champions. We’ve to play our best cricket. If we could do it, I think, many things will be possible for us,” he added.
