India vs Afghanistan, one-off Test
14 June 2018, 11:50 | Henrietta Morgan
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.
While Afghanistan are playing their first ever Test, there is no shortage of confidence.
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.
