Kohli shrugs off past laurels, says won't take B'desh for granted

She added the world can not accommodate slavery and one should take responsibility to voice against it.

With India and Bangladesh joining hosts England in the last four and the victor of Monday›s Sri Lanka against Pakistan match taking the final semifinal berth, it›s been a strong tournament for the teams from the sub continent.

India skipper Virat Kohli has reclaimed the top batting spot in the latest ICC ODI Player Rankings for batsmen released on Tuesday morning following the conclusion of the last round of league matches in the Champions Trophy 2017.

"It's not a very big game but a very big opportunity".

Appearing at the pre-match briefing, the Tigers captain said that he was not sure if the semifinal against India is the biggest match ever for Bangladesh. "This is what we have been dreaming for".

"If there is a sunny day in England, there is no better place to play cricket". India were saved by the Bangladesh and then India progressed through the semi-finals and lost to eventual winners West Indies.

Pretty much all their big-name guys are in their 20s, and they don't show any signs of slowing down. Still, he insisted he had another notch to raise his game, and he certainly found it.

Speaking about the high voltage semi final, Kohli said: "We have been in these kind of games before quite few times. Each and everyone will see this game". We have tried to play at our best in every match. There has been some luck along the way too; had four more overs of play been possible at the Oval against Australia, Bangladesh would have been on a flight home. Bangladesh came into the tournament as No six ranked ODI side and qualified ahead of Aussies and Kiwis. Tamim's brilliant 128 against England was followed by 95 against Australia and that he registered a rare blob against the Kiwis should not deter you.

"As we've seen, a lot of teams have surprised the opposition and we're certainly not taking anything for granted". If both teams end with the same number of runs, they would have to play a Super Over. When I started playing for India I was happy just playing one game for India.

MASHRAFE MORTAZA: First thing is we're playing also first time in our life to semifinal, so that is also a fact, and also if it's pressure, I think India got more pressure than us because the huge population is there, and people love cricket in India a lot. The decision for them is whether they want the offspin of Mehedi Hasa.

However, the TV replays showed that it was a real touch-and-go situation which could have gone either way. "We have a good combination in place - a good combination of youth and experience", he said.

Kohli added: "They are a very risky side on their day and everyone realises that".

Batsmen in form, bowlers on target and fielding top notch - Virat Kohli's men have covered all bases so far and Mashrafe Mortaza's men - after their lucky entry into semi- finals - will have to pull off something really special at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground tomorrow. "We created chances in all our matches", said chief selector Minhajul Abedin. "Those days, I used to dream about what is happening to Bangladesh cricket now".
