Afghanistan interim head coach Andy Moles said that they are not taking any extra pressure of winning as they will feel if they lose it will be a learning curve for them.

Bangladesh take on Afghanistan in the one-off Test series at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on September 5.

‘’We need to be more consistent, we have played two test matches, it is the third test match. We need to bat for longer, we need to bowl better when we come to bowl in the second or first spells. We need to make sure at the field that our concentration level is higher, you know in this form of game there is very much hard, but there is no excuse from me,’’ said Moles.

‘’Certainly, if we don't play well then it could be a learning curve and we must get better in all aspect and we need to play more test match cricket. We are respecting Bangladesh team as they play wonderful cricket at home from long long time and we are coming here as very much underdogs. We are looking forward to take challenge. We are under no illusion that's it gonna be easy. If we can show up in the occasion and concentrate and do the right thing and right time then we will be capable to do something special,’’ he said adding that he is aware that host will come up with spin attack.

.‘’I’m not here to talk about Bangladesh. I’m here to talk about what we can control. We can control how they bat, bowl and field. I can get my players under the captaincy of Rashid to apply them in a manner which get the best out of them. Being consistent is our challenge. We have got skillful players as well,’’ said Moles

‘’I’m not surprised.  I have seen the results of yours in last few games. Its home advantage. I would be surprised if they did not come with spin. We also have good spin attack,’’ he said adding that if they manage to win it will be massive for Afghan cricket.

‘’It [if we win] will be massive. We can play well because the guys have put that effort. We are not scared of Bangladesh, but we respect them. We know how we have to play. Hopefully the players apply themselves according to the plans in dressing room and team meetings,’’ he said
