Not to lose any ranking points. We lost 4 RANKING points losing one game against Afghans at home even though we won the series. Not taking any chances this time around I guess.

The wicket wasn't under prepared. Mirpur averages below 260. That is the nature of the wicket. Slow and difficult if you aren't patient enough. It is extremely difficult for any team to come to a foreign condition and adjust in 2 days without any match practice. Pak, Ind, SA, Eng, Aus found that out.
