Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has reaffirmed his belief in the Mahmudullah-led T20 outfit to defeat Pakistan in their away series scheduled to commence on January 24. Speaking at a promotional event at Dhaka, the former skipper claimed Bangladesh had the ability to overpower the No. 1-ranked Pakistan in their home.
Shakib, who was handed a one-year suspension from the game owing to his failure to report corrupt approaches, said Bangladesh needed to take inspiration from Sri Lanka’s relatively inexperienced side that whitewashed Pakistan in October.
“I am expecting a solid performance from the team. Hopefully they get back home with success. When Sri Lanka played last against them, they won the series 3-0. So, I think we should do the same”- he said.
