B’desh wary of Windies backlash

DHAKA – Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan will not take victory for granted when his home team clashes with the West Indies in a must-win World Cup match on Friday. The West Indies, who have not played on Bangladeshi soil since 2002, suffered a 3-0 defeat by the Tigers at home two years ago when the top players went on strike due to a pay dispute.
Shakib ruled out another easy win in the day-night match at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium, which neither team can afford to lose after securing one win each from their first two Group B games. “The West Indies did not have their main players in that series, but they are back now which makes them a very good side,” he said.
“We will have to be at our best to beat them. I am confident we can win, but for that to happen we must play good cricket.” Bangladesh came back after losing the tournament opener to India by 87 runs to down Ireland by 27 runs despite being bowled out for a modest 205.
