Lahore: Pakistan skipper Shoaib Malik has said that his team was not distracted with the ongoing hue and cry over the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) five-year ban on Shoaib Akhtar.

Malik said the players were concentrating on their performance ahead of the ODI series against Bangladesh.

"'It is something between the Board and a player. We are professional players and we are supposed to concentrate on our jobs which is playing cricket and doing well for our country," Malik said.

The skipper said Pakistan had enough talent to do well in the series and the target would be to win all the matches against Bangladesh.

He, however, said ''they are not going to take them lightly."

"We are not going to underestimate the Bangladesh side as they are a good one-day squad who have caused many upsets in the past," he stated.
