India v/s Afghanistan Test match

I didn't lose my place to a normal cricketer it was MS Dhoni says Dinesh Karthik

Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman have been striking players in the IPL. The Mumbai batsman will go down in history as the opposing captain in Afghanistan's debut Test match.

What time the India v/s Afghanistan Test match start?

"As a Test team, we can not take anyone for granted because cricket is a amusing game".

"We won't take Afghanistan lightly".

"Every member will like to believe that their team is good". We know they're a decent team, with (good) bowlers. In Test cricket, every session matters a lot. And our spinners, Kuldeep (Yadav), Ashwin or (Ravindra) Jadeja, they are all experienced. "Fortunately the three fast bowlers (Wafadar, Sayed Shirzad and Yamin Ahmadzai) were not in T20I squad and they have been concentrating on Test preparation. We have to look and see what happens. but his professionalism will help him to adjust and am sure he will come out well". We respect them as an opponent, but we will stick to our strengths.


"It's important we play our minds rather than skills, because getting back to Test from T20 cricket is all about tuning your mind rather than focusing on your skills".

Stanikzai admitted his inexperienced unit faced a daunting task in the long format but said they were determined to put their best foot forward. And their recent performance against Bangladesh must have boosted their confidence. "Their expectation will be the same from us". "I think there will always be a bit of disappointment in the players not to be on the same field as Virat", said Simmons.

What time does India vs Afghanistan one-off Test match begin? We don't beat Virat. "We are happy to be here and playing India, Virat is not India".

While majority of the sports fans, in soul and spirit, will be in Russian Federation enjoying the surreal skills of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the eternal cricket romantic will try to derive his little pleasures of life watching Rashid Khan trying to hurry Shikhar Dhawan with a flipper or bowl a googly to Ajinkya Rahane. With a spin-heavy squad, the Afghans may be surely aiming for a fairy tale start to their Test journey as skipper Asghar Stanikzai also backed his spinners being better than the home trio of Ashwin, Jadeja and Kuldeep.
