Gulbadin Naib warns Bangladesh with cheeky words
Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan this Monday to keep their hope alive in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. It is a must-win game for the Mashrafe Bin Mortaza led side after losing to Australia in the previous match.
Although Afghanistan has nothing to lose in the tournament anymore, they desperately want to beat Bangladesh in the upcoming match. Meanwhile, ahead of the clash, Afghanistan skipper Gulbadin Naib had some cheeky words for the Tigers.
“Hum to dube hai sanam, tumko lekar dubenge (We are already drowned darling, but we will take you with us),” a smiling Gulbadin Naib said when asked about the match against Bangladesh in the pre-match press conference on Sunday.
Gulbadin has also warned the opponent saying that they have world’s one of the best spin bowling attack. He added “I know Bangladesh also have shown their skills in this tournament, how they played, and they chased 320 against West Indies. Our spinners are one of the best spin attacks in the world. When the wicket is suitable for us, it’s very difficult, not only for Bangladesh but for everyone.”
Afghanistan who are already out calculations for the world cup semifinals will try their best to register their first victory as they are yet to win a match in the tournament. They were very close to winning against India in their previous game but lost the match by 11 runs at the end.
Bangladesh and Afghanistan faced each other seven times in the 50-over format and the Tigers currently have a 4-3 lead over the opponent. However, Afghanistan won the last encounter between these two teams in 2018 Asia Cup. Therefore, they will be high on confidence before the real game starts on the field.
