  • India seal massive win after wickets tumble

"The learning curve is huge", former West Indies player Simmons said after his team were thrashed by an innings and 262 runs in a total mismatch.

Yes, we are talking about Afghanistan, who were about to step into their first ever Test match after being granted as "Full Members" by the ICC in June 2017.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were chief wreckers for India, picking up four wickets each in first and second innings respectively.

"Test cricket is a lot about attitude and patience and as I mentioned, with that bowling they can damage any team". It's just about playing those matches, five-day cricket regularly. creating those situations in practice also and thinking and visualizing as batsmen how they are going to play against each opponent.

Afghanistan can contend well in limited-overs cricket, something they proved with a 3-0 blanking of Bangladesh in a Twenty20 series preceding the Bengaluru match, but were unable to cope with the demands of test cricket on their debut. South Africa made 84 in its very first test innings and, more recently, Ireland 130. "If two or three guys can bat for a long period then they can be a decent side", said India's stand-in skipper.

"We were swayed a bit by the occasion", Afghanistan coach Phil Simmons said.

The final Afghanistan wicket to fall, just two minutes before play was officially scheduled to end, saw handshakes and hugs exchanged between the teams.

"There is an air of disappointment in the dressing room, but it is not about losing".

"Test cricket is totally different from T20 and one day matches".

"It's a mountain to climb".

The researchers looked at the three major Antarctic areas: East Antarctica, West Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula. Worryingly, the paper demonstrates that the rate of ice loss has tripled in recent times .

The first innings was all over in less than 28 overs.

For Afghanistan, Mohammad Nabi (24) was the highest scorer.

But forced to follow on, Afghanistan lowered the record again, to 103 in 39 overs.

Hashmatullah Shahidi put the brakes on by striking an unbeaten 36 off 88 deliveries but ran out of partners.

But India's bowling was tough to contend with.

But Hardik Pandya's aggressive 71 kept the hosts in control of the one-off game.

That was Ashwin's 316th test wicket, good for third on the all-time list of India bowlers, above Zaheer Khan with 311. "Insha'Allah (God willing), we can do well", the 30-year-old batsman said. But this was good for us and good for the future.

Earlier, India completed its first innings from 347-6 overnight.

Ashwin scalped four wickets for 27 runs while Jadeja and Ishant picked up two wickets each to dismiss the visitors inside a session.

Afghan paceman Yamin Ahmadzai stood out with three wickets while fellow quick Wafadar and teenage spinner Rashid Khan took two each.
