Ahead of Bangladesh’s match against West Indies in Taunton – one that both teams have to win to keep their semi-final hopes intact – the skipper Mashrafe Mortaza assessed his opponent’s strengths and weakness without dwelling too much on the past.

“We have faced their main bowling attack, but we can’t relax because of that. We have to understand that it is a new game,” he said. “In tournaments like this, you have to plan differently for each team. You can’t just stick to one type of mindset. We can’t expect it to be an easy win because of winning seven out of nine matches.
