17 June, 2018, 03:58
Dhawan, the sixth batsman to achieve the feat in total, racked up 104 runs from 91 balls prior to the interval at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, with all but 10 of those runs coming in boundaries. The people of India have shared the joys of millions of Afghans and the success of the players in tournament in India and elsewhere.
In exile in India, Afghan cricket is producing world-beaters like 19-year-old spinner Rashid Khan.
"The exciting thing about Afghanistan cricket is that there is a great young talent pool available and it only bodes well for the future of this team", said coach Phil Simmons, who has previously been in charge of Zimbabwe and Ireland as well.
"Cricket has been a source of happiness and pride for all Afghans", said Afghanistan Cricket Board chief Atif Mashal at the time. Talking about Afghanistan, we won't take them lightly.
Afghanistan displayed their stomach for a fight in their maiden test by claiming five wickets in the final session to leave India on 347 for six after the opening day of the one-off contest on Thursday.

He continued in his role as leader of the pace attack and was an important part of the side led by MS Dhoni that eventually lifted the inagural edition of the World T20 in South Africa. "We all know the stats, but we don't focus on stats". India is led by Ajinkya Rahane while Afghanistan will be captained by Asghar Stanikzaiin the historic Test.
India, on the other hand, are most likely to call up their star spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin, the world's fourth and fifth-ranked Test bowlers respectively.
For the Afghans, Ahmadzai was the pick of the bowlers with a couple of wickets while Wafadar, Rashid and Mujeeb contributed with one wicket apiece. The Test might be of massive significance to Afghanistan, being their first and all, but to India this is more of a chance to give their Test regulars a chance to get some game-time before leaving for the much-hyped series in England. Unlike Pakistan cricketers, Afghan players like Rashid Khan and Mohammed Nabi feature regularly in IPL and even have a fan following here.
