The following is from a cricinfo quotes article:
CI Link (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/quote/content/current/page/156062.html)

"All we can do is to go out there and give it everything and maybe Bangladesh might underestimate us."
Surely some mistake? Not at Under-19 level it isn't. England's captain, Moeen Ali, isn't exactly optimistic about his side's prospects of reaching the semi-finals of the U19 World Cup.

Mods: If this belongs instead in the match thread, please free to move it. :)

England has lost consistently (all in Dhaka) against Bangladesh.
Moeen Ali is right in his assessment, complacency would be a big concern for Bangladesh. We have seen that against Uganda.

Hope Ali's wish won't come true, it is high time our top order bats should start playing some sensible cricket.

And this is what Cricinfo says:

"They now face holders Pakistan in the quarter-finals while England have an equally daunting task against Bangladesh"

It feels good inside to see BD not at the receiving end..........and it should be an example to some of us crazy fans that if and when we do good we will get our well earned respect.............and when we do bad we should also accept the criticism and don't whine about it.

Looks like some balancing act by Cricinfo.........

England's capatian said:

"All we can do is to go out there and give it everything and maybe Bangladesh might underestimate us."

Cricinfo stated:

"Surely some mistake? Not at Under-19 level it isn't. England's captain, Moeen Ali, isn't exactly optimistic about his side's prospects of reaching the semi-finals of the U19 World Cup."

Read the CI comment again. Not a balancing act ... they r just trying to give it some background and drama.
