We know Bangladesh are under pressure: Williams


In the ongoing tri-series, Bangladesh and Afghanistan have claimed one win apiece so far. While Zimbabwe are still looking for their first triumph and ahead of their second encounter against Bangladesh, the team’s all-rounder Sean Williams reckoned it is the opposition who will be under pressure.

“Like I said, if we focus on what we need to do, everything will take care of itself. They are under pressure, we know that. But you know again it goes back to us doing the basics,” Williams said.

Williams admitted Bangladesh is a very strong team with lots of experience cricketers in the team but T20 competition can go either way in a given day.

“I think Bangladesh is a very strong team all round. They have got a very good structure going all the way down to the club levels. T20 cricket can go either way. Like I said, fine margins.

“You know, they have got some very very good players, some very experienced campaigners. They have Shakib, Mahmudullah, Mushi. You know they are all very good players and we respect that fact.

“So, no game we are ever going to take lightly. We would just like to go out there, focus on our own things and do what is required for our team,” he added.

Bangladesh pulled quite an unlikely victory in the first match against Zimbabwe, courtesy to a fiery half century from Afif Hossain. The home team struggled to get hold of things in their second match against Afghanistan as Afghans finished the game with a fine win of 25 runs.

Williams said, “It is extremely important. Obviously, we have learnt a lot from what we have been through. And I think you can see the team starting to bond more and more and come together more as a unit.”
