Video - Rahim Talks Up Bangladesh Chances

Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim is talking up his side's chances of winning their ICC World Twenty2- Group Two clash with reigning champions the West Indies.

Bangladesh qualified for the tournament they are hosting despite a slip-up in their qualifying group when they lost their final game against Hong Kong.

Wins against Afghanistan and Nepal ensured they progressed to join Australia, India, Pakistan and next opponents the West Indies in the Super 10s.

And Rahim is confident that his side can bounce back from their upset defeat and delight their home fans with a win against Darren Sammy's men.

"They also did not have a good game last night, so they also under pressure, and that's their second game, so they have a must-win game," he said.

"Hopefully if we can put up a good show and if we can rectify our mistakes, do well and apply well in the middle then we have a good chance to win tomorrow and we are looking forward to that."

Rahim went on to praise the support of the fans, who have got behind the team despite a poor run of recent results, including the Asia Cup on home soil where they failed to win a game.

"Obviously they have been really great for us and although we didn't perform well in the last two three months but still they are coming here and they are supporting us.

"Hopefully we will back them also with a performance," he added.
