Video - Hafeez On 'Must-Win' Bangladesh Match

Looking ahead to tomorrow's ICC World Twenty20 game against Bangladesh, captain Mohammad Hafeez says Pakistan must win both of their remaining games to qualify for the semi-finals.

After they lost to arch-rivals India in their opening match, they bounced back to beat Australia but with India already qualified, and one semi-final place remaining, any further defeats would likely end their chances.

Bangladesh are already out of the competition following defeats to the West Indies and India but will again play in front of an expectant home crowd in the day's opening game in Mirpur.

"Well, I think first of all regarding tomorrow's game, the picture is very much clear in front of us," Hafeez said.

"As a team we know that we have to win each and every game to be through to the final. And then to win it you have to take one game at a time, I think.

"And we all know as a team that there is no chance of making any mistakes, so we are ready for it and looking forward for tomorrow's game and I think in the last game the attitude [the] boys shown, we pulled up in a [from a] very difficult situation... great character shown by everyone," he added, referring to the win over Australia.

"I think we have been able to cross the line and that's a great sign for the team."
