He said: “They have proved themselves in Champions Trophy. They played in semi-finals. They are not an easy team.”

In the ODI series, the pressure will be against Bangladesh but that doesn’t mean South Africa will play without any kind of pressure, believes Imran Tahir.

“We have to prepare ourselves. It is an International match. We have to work hard. We have to play like the way we play.”

The leg spinner also said about the target for this series: “We want to win. But we are playing against an International team. So it won’t be easy. We have to play good Cricket to beat them.”

The South Africa tour has been going pretty bad for the Tigers, but they will look to turn it around in the three match ODI series and with Shakib Al Hasan, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza & Tamim Iqbal back in the team, the confidence will be high to fightback in the series.
