The Comilla Victorians’ skipper denied any sort of complacency after winning five consecutive matches; he said, “I don’t find any scope of being complacent. Cricket is game of uncertainty. We won five successive matches, next three matches might go wrong. So there is no chance of being relaxed. We have to carry the momentum now.”
