VVS Laxman hails government's decision to not play bilateral series against Pakistan

With the start of the Champions Trophy-a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day global sides-just two days away, this was a poorly-timed flop from Bangladesh, whose bowlers were swatted away by holders India as they piled up 324 for seven. The inspirational Bangladesh captain, sitting beside the glittering piece of glory, was responding to a question of how far he was from the trophy. Mashrafe feels the added expectation could pile pressure on the hosts.

There are serious off-field issues plaguing both teams but defending champions India, along with the mighty Australia, will start as title contenders in the ICC Champions Trophy, beginning in London on Thursday.

While it remains A.B.de Villiers' greatest unfulfilled ambition to win a World Cup, the 33-year-old will cherish any sort of trophy with his national team at this stage.

"You are asking about 2015".

Hosts England, who have shown incredible transformation as a potent limited-overs side, will be the "Dark Horse" in the eight-team tournament where the once formidable West Indies are a notable absentee. "And especially at home, they are a serious side".

Like England, Australia have a potent top six with openers Aaron Finch and David Warner both capable of taking a game away from the opposition in a hurry.

Khan has bagged eight wickets in five ODI matches played against Team India.

"The other thing also, is that we have some exciting youngsters like Mustafizur and Sabbir Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, those players are also in our side". The combination is very good. They also took England to a decider in the hotly contested one-day series in Bangladesh a year ago.

But it was also an indication of how Bangladesh were more than just a team to be respected in sub-continental conditions, something they emphasised with wins over New Zealand and Ireland in a triangular warm-up tournament in Dublin this month.

The Champions Trophy offers Bangladesh the opportunity to assert themselves and to walk the talk that they can compete with the best and improve.

He felt that England would be under more pressure than Bangladesh going into the tournament opener.

"I am pretty confident that India will go in as the favourites and come out with flying colours", he added.

"There will be a lot of pressure, but I think we can cope up".

The Men in Blued then skittled out Bangladesh for a paltry 84 in only 23.5 overs, thus winning the game by a huge margin of 240 runs. They can raze 300-plus targets and raise 400-plus mountains with seamless ease. "In terms of batting and bowling, most of us have batted and most of the bowlers have bowled". Starting as the eighth-ranked side we have now reached sixth.

Talking about the same, he said, "We are very much excited for the India-Pakistan match".
