With the Scottish team in Dhaka today for the 2-ODI series, I culled up some recent news. Do also check the tour coverage from the main menu:

Anything less than comprehensive wins will be a let down, even though they have experienced players, most of them are part-timers, so yeah looking for big wins Inshallah.

They are stuck in the time frame of 1999 WC. Good luck to them. :saint:

I'd pay proper respect to the opponent. I'd give them credits for being confident. They are entitled to be confident just the way we are. Besides it would be good for us if they manage to test our limits.

Somehow, they find extra energy everytime they play us. Looking for some exciting show.

Where are our Scott friends now?

Nasif : Yeah..and to be frank.. except Zimbabwe and Kenya ..everyone thinks that we are still unable to compete in the top 8..I know we are not totally into it..but we are surely performing better than India,England with whatever tasks we are given recently.

Chinaman : I do respect our opponents..and their confidence..But somehow i feel scotland team is being arrogant..But anyway! only time will tell...maybe they do have something 'special' for us..or maybe it will be an easy clean sweep for us.
