Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes said he is proud of the way the Tigers have played in the World Cup so far against tough opponents, and aiming to finish the tournament on a high note by achieving a positive result against Pakistan at Lord’s Friday. 

The Tigers had to win against India to remain alive in the tournament but in the end, they fell short by 28 runs while chasing a challenging total of 315 at Edgbaston in Birmingham Tuesday.  

The Bangladesh coach believes this format of the World Cup is an open one for every team, and he is feeling proud the way his charges have performed so far.

“I think it's been a very good format. It gives everybody a chance to beat each other. You play each other just the once. So I've really enjoyed the format. I wish good luck to the guys who are in the semi-finals. I wish it was us, but I'm very proud of the way we've played against a lot of the big teams, and I think that we'll be the people's team for the amount of fight that we put in,” said Rhodes after the match Tuesday.

Bangladesh are out of the tournament now and have only one game in hand. 

The Tigers definitely try to win the game and finish the tournament positively. 

“The Pakistan game [Friday] - I'm really looking forward to that game. I think we beat them in the Asia Cup, and they'll want to change that. We showed in some of the games we played this year, that we're going to be a difficult side for Pakistan to beat. We know we have to play well again because they run into a little bit of form in the back ends of the tournament,” said Rhodes.

“But we're confident. We don't want to leave these shores with a defeat against Pakistan. We want to leave these shores with a victory. Hopefully, we’ll be very professional, and we'll fight really, really hard. We'll be desperate to get the points against Pakistan,” Rhodes concluded.
