Bangladesh's chances in the Super Eight

After achieving the the super eight passage one may wonder what are the chances for Bangladesh. The team will be playing six matches (Thanks Michael). Those are:

Saturday 31st March: Australia vs. Bangladesh
Monday 2nd April: New Zealand vs. Bangladesh
Saturday 7th April: South Africa vs. Bangladesh
Wednesday 11th April: England vs. Bangladesh
Sunday 15th April: Ireland vs. Bangladesh
Thursday 19th April: West Indies vs. Bangladesh

So five tough games and one relatively easy one against Ireland. So Bangladesh can hope to win at least one and even two matches if they can fancy their chances with England, New Zealand or West Indies. That won't give them a semi-final birth though.

Nevertheless it is a terrific World Cup Mission for Bangladesh and thanks to Dav Whatmore, the coach for getting the team to believe in themselves.
