WELLINGTON---South Africa s comprehensive
win over Sri Lanka in the quarterfinals of the
Cricket World Cup might have sent a strong
message to potential opponents in the tourna-
ment s later knockout rounds. If so, New Zealand
didn t receive it.
Grant Elliott, New Zealand s South African-
born allrounder, said yesterday that his team s
focus is squarely on its own quarterfinal match

run ended yesterday
with a nine-wicket loss
at the Melbourne Crick-
"It was a brilliant tournament for us. Obviously
the way we played today wasn t great, but ... since
2008 we haven t (played in Australia) so it was a
really big ask from us," Mortaza said. "The way
the boys adapted to the wicket and the conditions,
I feel very proud as captain of this team and hope-
fully our boys will take it in the next series."
After a slow start with the bat, India eventually
built a strong partnership between century-maker
Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina to reach 302-6.
In reply, Bangladesh made a bright start but fell
foul to some sharp India fielding.
Despite the loss, Mortaza said Bangladesh had
a lot of positives to take from the World Cup.
"Except today, (our) batters batted really well
throughout this tournament, which was much
needed for us and hopefully that will continue
because a very tough year is coming for us," he
said. "The confidence we got, hopefully it will

still one of the minnows of world cricket and Mor-

stages we ve been very good. Sharma and Suresh
took the game from us."

Wellington. If it wins that match, the team would
face South Africa in the semifinals.
"We ll concentrate on this game and if we get
to the semifinal then we ll have a look at (the
South African) team and scout them accordingly,"
he said. "Our sights are set on this team. It s a
strong West Indies team and a crunch game."
Elliott didn t comment on a suggestion by West
Indies allrounder Darren Sammy that New
Zealand will be under much greater pressure on
Saturday than its underdog opponents being the
home team and clear favourite after progressing
through pool play without a loss.
Sammy also pointed out that New Zealand has
never won a World Cup and when the two teams
last met in the knockout rounds of an international
tournament, the 2012 Twenty20 World Cup, the
West Indies were victorious.
Elliott responded by saying that New Zealand
would concentrate solely on its own match prepa-
