India Vs Afghanistan, One-Off Test: Shikhar Dhawan Hammers Century Before Lunch

It was previous year that team Afghanistan and Ireland were given the test playing status. "Not only are they competing in shorter formats but are also winning series", Karthik appreciated Afghanistan's team. The hosts will have their best spinners in the world - Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who have singlehandedly dominated on home turf adding much to the script of India's rise to the top spot in Test cricket. Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman have been striking players in the IPL. Yamin Ahmadzai managed to keep things quite at the other end but both the pacers were unable to trouble the Indian opener.

"As a Test team we can not take anyone for granted because cricket is a amusing game". Now let's look at the streaming details of the match.

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.

Shikhar Dhawan gave Afghanistan a taste of the Test match cricket with a dominating century, hammering the spinners with a great array of shots to all parts of the ground. The match will start at 9.30 AM, which means the toss will take place at 9.00 AM.

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 global star.

The one-off test match is considered as a historic match since this will be Afghanistan's maiden test match after obtaining the test status from ICC. For Hindi commentary, one can tune into Star Sports 1 Hindi/HD.

Afghanistan captain Asghar Stanikzai was presented with a memento from former India all-rounder Salim Durani, who was born in Kabul, before the match began.
