The coach of the ACC Trophy Elite 2008 winners saw his side defeat Papua New Guinea in a warm-up match in Buenos Aires on Wednesday and he believes his side is capable of gaining promotion from Division 3.

'I am happy with how the preparation has gone and I have had no doubt that the boys will do well,' said Habib.

'I think it is going to be quite equal. The teams who are best equipped and who have prepared better are the teams that will go through.'

Habib believes the fact that his side contains so much experience will give added motivation for the team to play well at this tournament.

'We have a number of older players so this is the last dice for them if they want to play in a World Cup Qualifier,' he said.
