Bangladesh never ever could smell a victory in their over a two-decade more at the home soil of South Africa however this time they can at least expect after the hopes voiced by the Tigers one-day skipper Tamim Iqbal prior to his flight to the land along with their head coach Russell Domingo just two days before the ODI series.

Tigers’ skipper believed that the miracle of Mount Maunganui will gravely inspire them in this respect although it was a Test it surely will push them to break the vicious circle of loss against the host side.

‘If you think about the victory against New Zealand where we couldn’t win in the 30-32 games, that team broke the deadlock.’

‘Hope this team will also be able to change it. One thing I strongly believe is that if you are mentally fresh and if you have the belief anything is possible.’

‘I can predict one thing with my side that it is possible to achieve something good.’

Simultaneously Russell Domingo also left a high hope stating that this time they are keen to achieve such a success that no other Bangladesh team could earn.

‘South Africa will definitely start as favorites. They are playing in their own conditions where they are a tough side to beat. They will start as favorites but that suits us coming as underdogs.’

‘It gives us a great opportunity to do something special. We want to do something that no Bangladesh team has done here before.

Conversely, the home side will take motivation from the 3-0 series win over touring India back in January of this year.

The hosts will encounter the three-match one-day internationals which are starting on Friday at Centurion with their full strength despite many of their front-liners being part of the IPL that starts on March 26.

The Proteas who have only bagged three wins out of 10 in the ICC ODI Super League, will need to come up with their best in this series to climb up the table.
