COLOMBO: Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah said on Tuesday the underdogs, fresh from upsetting Sri Lanka, plan to hone their “brand” of Twenty20 cricket against India in a key tri-series showdown.

The visitors staged a 215-run chase to defeat hosts Sri Lanka in their second match of the tournament.Bangladesh, 10th in the world T20 rankings behind Afghanistan, will be in strong contention for the tri-series final if they beat India on Wednesday (today).

Mahmudullah said the minnows entered the series wanting “to create a Bangladesh brand of cricket”.“I think the skills are there. We need to be smart to take that calculated risk,” he told reporters in Colombo, saying his side had to compensate for its lack of power hitters.“Taking on a particular bowler who we think can be targeted, these sort of things we need to apply.”
