Default Game against New Zealand.. hopes remain?

OK... lets move on from yesterday's match now and look at tomorrow.

NZ cautious over Bangladesh clash-BBC
New Zealand will be looking to keep pace with Australia when they take on Bangladesh in Monday's World Cup Super 8 game in Antigua.

The Kiwis are the only side in the competition, apart from Australia, with a 100% record.

But skipper Stephen Fleming is taking nothing for granted after his side lost to Bangladesh in Barbados last month.

"They turned us over in the warm-up game and if conditions are right, they can be quite a handful," he said.

"The danger is complacency, under-estimating what they can do. They bowl a different length, they provide different challenges, challenges you don't get facing your own bowlers in the nets - so that's where the adjustment comes from."....

.....Bangladesh hope the weather will stay fine and allow a full 50-overs match to take place, after the inexperience of their batting line-up was exposed in Saturday's rain-shortened encounter with Australia, which they lost by 10 wickets.

"It's frustrating to see the boys squander opportunities with a rush of blood here and a rush of blood there," said Whatmore.

They may have to make an enforced change to their bowling attack after Tapash Baisya suffered an ankle injury against Australia. but Syed Rasel and Shahadat Hossain are both available to step in.

Full Report
IMO... the belo-par performance against AUS will do some good for the next games. It might just bring back some sanity in their way of playing and some seriousness back in also! Plus.. not to mention... some opponents might make the mistake of dropping their guards as well.

Lets just hope for the best!
Well...you only get one chance to make your first impression somewhere...!
