"They feel a real, genuine honour to be here and they want to do well for the public at home," Englishman Moles told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday ahead of the Pool A match.
               
"It's a massive inspiration generally for the players. They want to do well for the public at home and that's a really important message,” he said.
               
"It's been well documented the hardships that the players and the general public have at home all over Afghanistan,” he added.
               
"The next 24 hours... is getting ready for the game, is to make sure we're calm, we're calculated and make sure we execute our plans and if we do that Bangladesh can look forward to a very hard game tomorrow (Wednesday).”
               
"What happens is when we don't play our best cricket, we just get a bit excited. We want to hit fours and sixes," he said.
