We have all the ingredients in our batting. The variety in our bowling makes us lethal. “We have got our confidence back in the last two matches. Those who were not able to perform are back among runs. It will really help us in the long run. “Afridis innings was very important. It gave us a base. Overall it was a good display of team. Bowling did well also. The winning momentum is back and will help us for the rest of the tournament.” Lavishing praise on Mohammad Amir, who has returned after his spot-fixing ban, he said: “He has started his career very well from New Zealand and is improving day by day. “He delivers when he is given the job. We have a good variety working for the team and thats working. It was a good game but still we need to well very well in the tournament to reach final.” Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza said they could have fancied their chances had they restricted Pakistan to 160-170. “Against the Pakistani bowling attack, this was a big target. On this wicket we could have fancied our chances if the target was 160-170. “The score gave us huge pressure. We couldnt execute our plans. I wont blame the batsmen when you chase 200-plus against Pakistani attack.” Giving an update on their star left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman, he said: “Hes very close to be named in the XI but could not make it at last minute. “We did not want to risk him. At this point, hes the best bowler we have got. We want him to be fit and play. Unfortunately, could not get him. Hope he will play our next match (against Australia in Bangalore March 21).” Mortaza further said they are looking at one match at a time. “Were not thinking too far and focusing on each match. We will try our best in the next match. It will be flatter and the challenges would be tougher. We have to regroup quickly and come back strong. Every match will be tough in this group.” PTI TAP AH AHadvertisementlast_img read more
