Dhaka, May 12 - After winning the second one-day international against Bangladesh here Saturday, Indian team's cricket manager Ravi Shastri said that he would like his team to win the three-match series 3-0.
'We have come here to show no mercy because we take no prisoners. We want to finish it 3-0,' Shastri, a former India captain, told reporters here after India's 46-run win that gave the team a 2-0 win at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
'If Bangladesh is expecting us to go soft in the last game at Chittagong, they have another one - coming.'
The third match will be played Tuesday in Chittagong.
Shastri said that he want to win every game he plays, whether as a player or coach.
'That's me when I play the sport, when I played the sport, I want to win every game I compete in. No matter what the opposition I think of winning,' he said.
'Indian fans are very demanding and they would want India to beat Bangladesh 3-0.'
Shastri, who turned to television commentary after quitting international cricket, stressed that he had taken up the present job on one-off basis.
'I have said very clearly that I am here for the Bangladesh tour,' he said.
