Afghanistan is playing their first test today and it’s a historic moment for them. From war zone to playground it’s been an incredible journey. Cricket will only get richer once Afghanistan finds their feet in Test Cricket.
For now, they are only taking their first step. It will be interesting to see how they adapt from T-20 to Test cricket. The early nerves are already there with Dhawan smashing a 100 and Rashid taken to the cleaners. But there is hope. The Afghan boys will learn as they move forward. More importantly, cricket needs to open up to more and more associate nations to make it a more open sport.
Indian cricket fans supported Rashid Khan with a loud cheer when he bowling his first bowler but Chinnaswamy Stadium doesn’t support spin bowlers very well. Rashid Khan end up with bowling figures 26 overs 1 wicket 120 runs.
