We cannot take anything for granted: Al Amin

Bangladesh pace bowler Al Amin Hossain said on Wednesday that they are not taking anything for granted against Zimbabwe as things can change quickly in the game of cricket, report agencies.

Tigers abandoned their optional practice session on Wednesday as they are preparing to board for Sylhet on Thursday to take part in the three-match ODI’s series, scheduled respectively on 1, 3 and 6th March.

After their morale boosting win against Zimbabwe it is quite usual that host will take the visitors lightly in the upcoming ODI’s, though Al Amin insisted otherwise.

"We cannot take anything for granted," Al Amin told reporters at the BCB academy premises on Wednesday.

"We have to play good cricket with every team not only Zimbabwe or Afghanistan because there will always be ups and downs in cricket," he said.

"Sometimes we perform well and sometimes we don't and that is the way cricket goes. 

Even India lost Test against New Zealand so there will be both bad and good times. How we will face the bad times and how we will utilize the good times is upon us," he added.
