Vastavam web: Bangladesh coach wants his players to treat their Champions Trophy semi-final against India as a “big opportunity to show their talent.”It’s not a very big game but a very big opportunity. If we take it like that, it would be good for us. Any cricketer thrives on these opportunities said by Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha. Whenever there’s a match against India, for Bangladesh’s media as well as fans, it’s something more than cricket.
Ask any Bangladeshi, and he/she would say Rohit Sharma being given not out in that 2015 World Cup quarter-final was a “smacks of conspiracy” because of India’s “hold in ICC”.
Asked whether Bangladeshi players harbor a feeling of revenge, which was aggravated by those “Mauka Mauka” advertisements that gained eyeballs during the 2015 World Cup.”There’s no feeling of revenge. It’s about playing a good game against a very good Indian team. A win would give us a lot of confidence. We are thinking about winning and giving our best,” insisted the coach.He said that they have chalked elaborate plans for all the Indian batsmen which may work on a day but the ‘Men In Blue’ are good enough to jeopardize on another day.If Bangladesh beat India, will it be a surprise or a shock, he said.
