"India is the favorite team, they (have) come here to win the (T20) World Cup. We are not favorites and we didn't come here to win the World Cup. So, you can understand the situation and we know it very well. If we can win against India, it will (be) called an upset. We will try to play our best cricket and try to make an upset," said Shakib in the pre-match press conference.
