  • India vs Afghanistan Shikhar Dhawan breaks Virender Sehwag’s record

Vijay is unbeaten on 72-ball 41.

India is all set to host Afghanistan for one-off Test at Bengaluru. They earned the full member status past year from International Cricket Council (ICC) along with Ireland.

The 25 boundaries and four sixes in the first session was a testimony that there is a long road that Afghanistan need to travel. Mujeeb and Rashid have played in the IPL and know the Indian conditions well. However, the ball just missed the stumps despite pitching in the line, giving a lifeline for the Delhi batsman.

100! Shikhar Dhawan slams his seventh Test century, the sixth batsman to reach the milestone before lunch on day one of a Test match. There was a faint edge and remember, they had appealed for the caught behind.

So, the India vs Afghanistan one-off Test match will be telecast live on Star Sports 1/HD in England.

India also have a couple of new players in their squad, which will make Rahane's task of fielding the right combination a bit hard.

"We have worked hard for this and will try to keep up our good performance in the Test match as well", the 30-year-old skipper said.

Speaking about the upcoming series he said: "As a Test team we can not take anyone for granted because cricket is a amusing game".

India: Ajinkya Rahane (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Karun Nair, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur.

Despite praising the nascent achievements of Afghanistan as an global cricket team, Karthik has stated that Indian spinners will be a lot more experienced than their counterparts and have the ability to change the course of the game.

Afghans have five spinners in their squad in Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Zahir Khan and left-arm spinner Hamza Kotak with the captain Asghar Stanikzai confident about that they can cause trouble against the formidable Indians.
