Afghanistan will take on Bangladesh in a one-off Test at Chittagong from Thursday. Interim coach Andy Moles has said that he is not concerned about any particular aspect of his team apart from the fact that they need to show consistency in all three departments of the game.

"I am not concerned about any area. We need to play more consistently. We need to bat and bowl better. We need to make sure our concentration level is high while fielding. We are very much in need of efficiency."

"But if we don't play well, it will be a learning curve. And we must get better in all aspects playing more Test cricket. We have enough respect for Bangladesh team. They play wonderful cricket at home. But we are looking forward to the challenge. We are under no illusion that it’s going to be easy. But if we can do the right things at the right time, we can achieve something special after five days."

"I don’t have any concerns. We have been now together for two weeks in Abu Dhabi and then here. We worked on all aspects. And last few weeks we are working on our skills against spin. We are confident with our preparation. And now it's just to put forward the challenge to the players and they are looking forward to the Test match."

"The coaching staff is delighted with effort from the players. This is really hard challenge to play against Bangladesh in Bangladesh. If we look at the past series, top team in the world had to put a lot of hard work. We are under no illusion that this is going to be our tough examination of our skills. But we have worked hard. We are delighted with the attitude the players put into this game. Now, let's see how they play and hope for a good result."  

The one-off Test will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
