Bangladesh have a 50-50 chance of emerging victorious against host South Africa in the quarter-final of the U-19 World Cup at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom Thursday, believes junior Tigers captain Akbar Ali.

The youngsters in red and green made a brilliant start to the tournament, winning against Zimbabwe and Scotland to finish as Group C champion.

With that said, their performance against Pakistan raised doubts over their ability when it comes to playing against the top cricket nations.

“I think we have a 50-50 chance of winning [against South Africa]. They are a decent side and it will be a challenging match. We will be able to beat them easily if we bat and bowl well because doing well in two departments will guarantee success against them,” said Akbar to the media Wednesday.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Akbar has put emphasis on making the most of the first and last powerplay, and informed that the batsmen will need to take on added responsibility in the middle overs.

“We are trying to minimize our mistakes. We are focusing more on our batting. And we are trying to bowl tightly in the first and final powerplay because bowling tightly will help us earn success against them. And for that we will try to maintain our line and length against them,” he concluded.
