Bangladesh confident of one-day success in New ZealandBangladesh could surprise New Zealand and win this month's one-day series, if their batsmen can put some runs on the board, captain Mohammad Ashraful has said.

"Our bowling attack is reasonably good. If we can post a good total, it will not be impossible to win one or two games in the one-day series," Ashraful told Reuters on Wednesday.

Bangladesh will also play two tests on the tour, but Ashraful said his side's initial focus was on the three-match one-day series, which begins in Auckland on Dec. 26, before matches in Napier (Dec. 28) and Queenstown (Dec. 31).

"We are not too concerned about the test matches right at this moment. First of all we will try to put a good show in the one-day series," said Ashraful.

"If we can do well in the one-day internationals, the spirit in the tests will be high automatically."

"No doubt it is going to be a tough tour ... but we have confidence in ourselves. We are not going to be easy prey for New Zealand."
