Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah said on Wednesday that they are not ready to take any extra pressure on their shoulder as they prepare them for them for the series-deciding second game against India.
Bangladesh are leading by 1-0 margin in the three-match series after earning their maiden seven-wicket win over the host at Delhi and a repeat would help them earn a historical feat.
However, Mahmudullah is not ready to think too far ahead and more precisely take any pressure whatsoever from the outside ahead of their crucial game.
“Not really, from the beginning there wasn’t enough pressure on us, as you have mentioned that we had nothing to lose when we first came here, it is more to gain and tomorrow is another opportunity to gain victory for Bangladesh cricket,’’ said Mahmudullah.
‘’I don’t think that way [pressure on Indian side]. There will be pressure from both sides, who where will executive their plans well, will be on the top,’’ he said.
‘’From the start we are speaking about our approach[positive] that has to be on the top whatever if we lose or win, that does not matter, but approach and attitude has to be in a correct way, so that we can give ourselves a chance to win the game,’’ said Mahmudullah.
‘’India are very strong in their home soil and they have proven it in the last 11-12 years how strong they are. It will be a big achievement if we can win,’’ said Mahmudullah.
‘’[Our focus is laid]in our attitude, positivity and adaptability and taking the right decision at the right time and focusing on all the departments.
‘’We have come to India for the first time to play a bi-lateral series so if we can win it then it will be a big achievement for us,’’ he said.
