Tahir: Need to work hard to beat Bangladesh
South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir said Bangladesh proved in the 2017 Champions Trophy that they are a competitive side in ODIs and the Proteas need to work hard and stick to their plans to defeat the visitor. Bangladesh were beaten comprehensively in both the Tests against the host but Tahir believes one-dayers are a different ball-game altogether and the Tigers are very much competitive in the shorter formats.

“Bangladesh are competitive in ODIs. They proved that in the Champions Trophy . They qualified for the semis. They’re not an easy team, if people think that’s the case. We have to prepare ourselves, it’s an international game and we just need to work hard and play how we have been playing,” Tahir said after their practice session in Kimberley ahead of the ODI series. “I believe that the way we’ve been playing for the last two-three years, obviously we can beat any team. But for this game especially, it’s the first game of the season, so we just need to be really up for it and cover all the areas for this game.

“We want to win. And for that we have two-three days to work hard towards the series and we need to be fully prepared. We are playing against an international side and it’s not easy to just come and move your arm and beat them. We are really up for it and we want to play the game as hard as we can and try to win,” he concluded. The first ODI will be played at De Beers Diamond Oval in Kimberley Sunday and will be telecast live on GTV and Maasranga TV.
