India vs Afghanistan Shikhar Dhawan breaks Virender Sehwag’s record

Dhawan was unbeaten on 104 off 91, while Murali Vijay looked solid at the other end with 41 from 72.

Afghanistan will embark on a new journey in their cricket history when they make their Test debut against a Virat Kohli-less No.1-ranked India in the historic one-off Test at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Thursday. As "The Historic First" is all set to begin, an epic battle is likely on cards with a showdown between the Afghan spinners and Indian batsmen.

Afghanistan coach Phil Simmons' statement about "not knowing what it's all about till you get there" seemed prophetic as the talented bunch of cricketers got their introductory lessons in red ball cricket from two openers, who have played 85 Test matches between themselves. However, Rashid Khan had a flawless chance to dismiss the unsafe Dhawan in the 20 over, when the Afghans went for a review in an appeal for LBW.

The moment Rashid or Mujeeb (0/32 in 4 overs) tried to flight, Dhawan would step out, if they upped the pace of the deliveries, they were cut forcefully.

Ordinary North Koreans consistently voice unequivocal support for the leadership when speaking to foreign media. After months of speculation and threats, Trump on Tuesday met Kim Jong-un on Singapore's Sentosa island.

Dhawan rushed to his seventh Test century in 87 balls, his second-fastest.

"The historic friendship and relations between India and Afghanistan go back to centuries".

Call it irony, Dhawan stepped out to hit straight sixes off Afghanistan's three IPL participants - Rashid, Mohammed Nabi and Mujeeb ur Rahaman with effortless ease.

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