Bangladesh Have Got Under India's Skin A Few Times, Says Mohammad Ashraful

Ahead of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 semi-final clash between India and Bangladesh, former captains Mohammad Ashraful and Habibul Bashar said on Wednesday that the defending champions will be under the pressure and not Bangladesh.

"We have previously reached Asia Cup final. But no doubt this is the biggest moment in the history of Bangladesh cricket. It's like mini World Cup.
