Habibul Bashar, the captain, said that he was looking forward to the tournament. "I was a member of the World Cup team four years back and then we had hardly any ambition rather than playing good cricket," he said. "The scenario is totally changed now after we have already won a number of matches in the recent past."
"We are going to the World Cup with lot of confidence this time, especially after the away series victory and definitely our target is to make a second round berth. We know it will not be an easy task to beat at least one team like India and Sri Lanka to make our dream come true. But I think there is hardly any meaning to our trip if we have no target. I will not be surprised if my team beat any big fish in the competition."
