''We are not too concerned about him,'' Shadman was quoted as saying by <em>Cricbuzz</em> on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>''Bowling in Tests and shorter formats are different and we face lots of good quality bowlers in our domestic cricket. Though it might be slightly better in international cricket, I think if we play sensibly it won't be a problem. <p></p> <p></p>''I know Afghanistan have a good spin attack. I always work on handling pace bowling, but they have spinners like Rashid Khan, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mohammad-nabi/news/">Mohammad Nabi</a>, and they are good spinners with good variations. I think I should leave the ball that is spinning away and not go chasing at wide deliveries." <p></p> <p></p><strong>READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/want-to-make-bangladeshs-pace-attack-potent-overseas-charl-langeveldt-882339">Want to make Bangladesh s pace-attack potent overseas: Charl Langeveldt</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Rashid-led Afghanistan will arrive Bangladesh on August 30. After the one-off Test, both nations will be engaged in a Twenty20 tri-nation series with <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/zimbabwe/news/">Zimbabwe</a> being the third team. <p></p> <p></p>The focus now, however, is firmly on the Test series and how to face Afghanistan's spin attack. <p></p> <p></p>Shadman, who has played three Tests so far, said he has not lost confidence from his half-starts in New Zealand which saw him finish with scores of 27, 29, 24 and 37 in the two Tests. ''Maybe I was lacking in the New Zealand series. We don't have bouncy wickets like them. So when next time I will go, I try to prepare according to that but for now you can expect (some runs). 'I will try my best to make a big score. <p></p> <p></p> I will try to play my natural game. I will play like I play in first-class matches or with A team. We have lots of four-day matches with the A team keeping in mind that there is a <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/world-test-championship">World Test Championship</a> now. We were sent to India with BCB XI and we started out practice for this Test from there."
