Tigers not yet thinking about England
Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said his team are not thinking about the England game, or a place in the World Cup quarter-finals, as they gear up to face Scotland in Nelson on Thursday.
The Tigers face England in Adelaide on Monday in what is looming as the key match in the group to decide who gets fourth place and advances to the knock-out stages.
Mashrafe, while admitting that England are the better than the Associate side, knows that his team cannot take their eye off the ball against the Scots.
The Bangladesh skipper said: "England is a better team. They have a great chance as well. I think next match is really important but first, we need to play well against Scotland and then think about the later one."
Mashrafe also spoke about the expectations that his team has, not only from within the squad but also from fans back home. He insists that they did not target any matches and they wanted to beat all the teams, including Sri Lanka who beat them convincingly.
The right-arm seam bowler said: "Yeah, we expect to win. When we lost, we also lost some confidence. So this is an opportunity to win this match and go with some confidence into the game against England."
