All the other four teams are fancied to win the tournament. So its a difficult task,” Mortaza said. “We are thinking of the first match and will go match by match. If we do well tomorrow then we will think beyond. “Obviously theres a bit of confidence having played is good ODI cricket in the last one-and-a-half years. But T20 has always been difficult for us. But weve been doing well in the last three four weeks in T20s. Confidence is there and we want to make it count,” he said. Asked about the availability of left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman, who is recovering from a side strain, Mortaza said, “We cant say he will be available. He is feeling well. We have 24 hours to assess his condition. The physio and coach will take a decision.” Bangladesh had beaten Pakistan less than a fortnight ago back home to make the Asia Cup final but Mortaza refused to look back at the past. “If you go by history, Pakistan are much better. I dont think about past. We are focusing on how to get a good start tomorrow. We will give our best,” Mortaza said. “History says they are a much better side but if we play the way we have been playing it would be a good match for us. “Pakistan have more experience than us. We have had a good Asia Cup. We got some exciting players.” PTI TAP SSC SSCadvertisementlast_img read more
