SHIKHAR DHAWAN, INDIA VICE-CAPTAIN

“I guess they’re balanced, know what their strengths are, they’ve improved a lot. They’re a competitive side. Hats off to them, the way they played and won against Pakistan. When you play all-round cricket, the results will follow. The plan we made against them in the previous game, we will try and stick to that. Conditions will remain the same, we’ll plan for individuals by looking at videos of their batsmen, revise and prepare accordingly.”

MASHRAFE MORTAZA, BANGLADESH CAPTAIN

“I think it is a great lesson for the boys, I hope that young players will learn and understand that it is all about fighting till the last ball, and I hope they will learn this from now. It was difficult especially with performers like Saqib and Tamim not playing in this tournament. But the good thing is the boys didn’t give up, although we lost against Afghanistan in the group stage and again against India. But still the team fought back and I think the boys have done really well, one match to go and hopefully we will fight again and let us see.”
