Chittagong:

Call it over-confidence or just stating a plain fact, India's vice-captain Virender Sehwag termed Bangladesh as an ordinary Test side which cannot surprise the visiting team in the series starting with the first Test on Sunday.

In a pre-series press conference which was full of one-liner answers, Sehwag chose to give subtle hints and implied meanings a go by and declared that the result of the two-match Test series was a forgone conclusion.

"Bangladesh can surprise other teams in one-dayers but not in Test cricket. They are an ordinary side in Test. I don't think they can beat us," he told reporters.

"It is not overconfidence but Bangladesh cannot take 20 Indian wickets, even Sri Lanka could not do it. It is difficult for Bangladesh to beat us," he added.
