"They have still got some quality bowlers in their line-up (even in the absence of Taskin and Sunny suspended by ICC). We don't take any side lightly," Smith told reporters on the eve of the game to be played at Chinnaswamy stadium.

"It is going to be tough because Bangladesh are a much-improved side, and have some match-winners in their line-up. We have to be at our best if we want to beat them tomorrow night," Smith said in a pre-match conference yesterday. Smith said Bangladesh has learnt a lot under coach Chandika Hathurusinghe.

"They have learnt a lot under Chandika Hathurusinghe, and they will be a big challenge," he said. On Australia's chances of qualifying for semifinals, Smith said after the loss against New Zealand they are keen on getting the winning touch back.

"It is a tough group, there are some very good sides in our group. Obviously we didn't start as well as we would have liked the other night against New Zealand. It is in the past now. We need to win every game we play if we want to win the World Cup," he said.
