India vs Afghanistan, one-off Test

Karun Nair India Ranji Trophy

Stanikzai said that they are not nervous but "well prepared" for the rigours of Test match cricket.

KL Rahul has come in at number three. Dhawan was unbeaten on 104 off 91, while Murali Vijay looked solid at the other end with 41 from 72.

On Thursday, on the first day of the Test in Bengaluru, Shikhar Dhawan made a mockery of any such claim. Though they will be playing their first worldwide Test match, they could still have a meaningful impact on the result.

Dhawan celebrates his 7th Test ton. 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.

Karthik has appreciated the spirit of Afghanistan players as he felt they have flourished themselves in conditions of turmoil. However, the ball just missed the stumps despite pitching in the line, giving a lifeline for the Delhi batsman. Rashid Khan's delivery goes in vain as the ball races towards the boundary at deep mid-wicket.

"The historic friendship and relations between India and Afghanistan go back to centuries". India and Dhawan won't mind this though with fifty up in eleven overs.

So, the India vs Afghanistan one-off Test match will be telecast live on Star Sports 1/HD in England. Many argued that India was making a mistake by taking the visitors lightly and fielding a weakened XI.

Having won all their last six Test series at home in the previous season, the Indians are expected to sail through easily as they aim to start the season on a high and take the confidence to the five-Test rubber in England.

"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. Rashid Khan, Mujeeb-Ur Rahman will lead the Afghan bowling unit.

The Indian team will take on Afghanistan team in the one-off Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

But Rahane, who is standing in as captain for Virat Kohli, said there was no room for complacency in cricket.
