Not taking Bangladesh lightly: Raina

Wed, Mar 18, 2015, 04:06 PM
Melbourne, March 18, 2015: Middle-order batsman Suresh Raina has said India are not taking Bangladesh lightly ahead of their cricket World Cup quarterfinals clash at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) here on Thursday.

“We are not taking Bangladesh lightly. Tomorrow is a big day for us. This is the quarterfinals and we have to win. One mistake and you can lose," Raina said at the customary pre-match press conference here on Wednesday.

"All we need to do now is be disciplined in all departments of the game, be positive and look to enjoy each and every ball from here on. I'm very excited to play the quarterfinals against Bangladesh."

The 28-year-old believes that the defending champions will do well against their neighbours, who have a 1-all record against India in World Cups.

"Bangladesh have done well against us. We lost against them in 2007 and they have had success against us in Asia Cup as well. But we are not thinking about such facts. We are looking at what we have to do tomorrow and what we have done in our league matches," said the southpaw.

"We just need to play positive cricket and we will do well. The main World Cup is going to start for us tomorrow."

Overall, India have beaten Bangladesh in 24 One-Day Internationals (ODI), lost three three and one ended in no-result.
