  • Afghanistan is all set to make its Test debut against India in Bengaluru this week

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday he hoped a historic cricket match between India and Afghanistan would strengthen ties between the South Asian neighbours and allies in the fight against militancy in the region.

Dhawan looked unstoppable and got to his seventh Test ton in a mere 87 balls even as the Afghan spin trio of Nabi, Rashid and Mujeeb seemed all at sea with this format. Kohli's deputy, Ajinkya Rahane will be leading the side in Bengaluru.

"That's a pretty big statement to make, considering they haven't played Test cricket", Nair was quoted as saying by Mid-Day. Shardul Thakur and Navdeep Saini are the other two players who have been left out from the India playing XI. There is a lot of excitement surrounding the match. Afghanistan claimed their first Test wicket in the shortened session, but India remain in control on 248/1, with Vijay approaching a century.

After winning the toss, skipper Ajinkya Rahane said that it was a historic moment for Afghanistan and that he was really excited about the match.

"Today is that historic day". So overall it's going to be an exciting game of cricket.

Afghanistan, who have been forced to train in India since 2015 because of the conflict at home, have just secured a T20 series sweep over Bangladesh with teen sensation Rashid Khan now an worldwide star.

"We thank India and BCCI for their role in the development in Afghanistan cricket, and for organizing this match, and also request other Test-playing nations to organize Test series against Afghanistan".

Afghanistan, who are making their Test debut in this Test, used any many as five bowlers but have not been successful yet to break this opening pair of India. "People and supporters of the Afghanistan team were looking forward to this great event", the former Afghanistan head-coach, under whom the country made rapid strides, said. Before him, Virendra Sehwag had come very close to achieving the glory of become the first Indian to hit a century before lunch, but he had missed the milestone by 1 run against West Indies in 2006. "This demonstrates the indomitable Afghan spirit to overcome all challenges and realise aspirations for a purposeful, stable, united and peaceful nation".
