Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim said on Monday Saqlian had been working as a consultant before the team come up against Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Hafeez.

"We can't play all their bowlers normally, but attack some. We have players for that and we are planning in that way. If we can execute these plans, hopefully we'll do well," Rahim said.

Bangladesh need to win by a large margin if they are to advance to the super eight stage.

"Everything will depend on how the start goes for us. We can't just win, we have to keep an eye on the run rate. We know this and we will plan and choose our best 11 accordingly," Rahim said.
