Considering India as the best team Akram said it would be a perfect occasion for the Bangladesh bowlers to test their skills while the batsmen would be able to face a quality bowling attack ahead of the important games in the upcoming ICC event.
“It’s an opportunity for us to play against the best team. They have got the most compact batting; their bowling has also got depth and variation. It will be an occasion for our bowlers to test their skills and for our batsmen to score runs against a quality attack,” Akram Khan, the chairman of BCB’s cricket operations, said.
The former Bangladesh captain also thinks if Bangladesh can do well in the warm-up match against India, it will boost up the confidence of the players ahead of their big matches in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
“Besides, India are a team so busy it is hard for any team to play against them frequently. And if we can do well in that game it will give us a world of confidence for the opening game against England,” he concluded.
