World Twenty20 Short Deliveries: Bangladesh call in Saqlain Mushtaq help
Tuesday 25 September 2012
Former Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq is helping Bangladesh's batsmen prepare for their Twenty20 World Cup encounter with the Pakistan spinners in their final Group D match today.
"We can't play all their bowlers normally, but attack some. We have players for that and we are planning in that way. If we can execute these plans, hopefully we'll do well," captain Mushfiqur Rahim said.
Bangladesh need to win by a large margin if they are to advance to the Super Eight stage.
