Landmark day for Afghanistan cricket. Test debut against the mighty Indian team. They are surely gonna take away great memories from this. The hype around the one off match created buzz amongst the fans and the opening day gave us glimpse of what the best batting line in the world can do to a debutant team. All said and done the fighters from Afghanistan fought back and clawed their way back into the game even if its just a small window, they have their foot in the door before it completely got closed onto them. Do tune in tomorrow to watch again. For all FIFA fans the timings are perfect if you are  into classic such as test matches owing to different telecast times.

Interesting fact for cricketing buffs

India- 522

Afghanistan- 1

Yes, that’s difference of 521 test matches between both countries.

Lets put our hands together for this lovely nation which has been marred by all sort of issues.They have worked hard amidst the ruins that their nation has been facing, courtesy bombings, explosions, shootings, killing of innocent people.

Rashid Khan would surely try to improve his fortunes tomorrow while India riding high on twin centuries of Dhawan and Vijay will look to post a mammoth total to close this one.
