However, the 33-year-old also feels that the Afghans may well emulate the success it achieved in the shorter version of the game. I am really happy for them, we really worked hard to get to this position, and hopefully they carry forward the hard-work. Indian Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore shook hands with Afghan players before the match and read out a congratulatory statement from Modi. Their three spinners could be Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman, who are certainties and Nabi could play the third spinner.

Recently, after routing Bangladesh in a three-match T20 series, Stanikzai said that Afghanistan have better quality spinners than India.

Seasoned opener Shikhar Dhawan smashed a quickfire century to help India pile 158/0 at lunch in the lop-sided opening session on day 1 of the one-off Test against debutants Afghanistan here on Thursday.

"If Virat Kohli was here, it would have been more fun playing the Test, with the kind of experience he has and the manner in which he plays Test cricket".

Talking about Rashid Khan - one man who has put Afghanistan on global cricket.

As Afghanistan's inaugural Test against India draws near, the disquiet within the Indian camp and the confidence within the visiting contingent grows.

Afghanistan captain Asghar Stanikzai was presented with a memento from former India all-rounder Salim Durani, who was born in Kabul, before the match began. Today, they are household names in the few years they've played. Bludgeoned by twin tons from Shikhar Dhawan (107, 96b, 19×4, 3×6) and Murali Vijay (105, 153b, 15×4, 1×6) early on, the Afghan bowlers hit back to claim five wickets in the last session on a rain-interrupted day to leave the hosts a tad uncomfortable at 347 for six.

Watchdog sees errors, not bias, in Comey's Clinton probe
The DOJ inspector general panned many of his key decisions, though he did agree with the recommendation not to charge Clinton. The FBI can not lawfully make that determination, even if the FBI Agent, in this case Comey, was previously a DOJ prosecutor.

India has been grooming Afghan players and helping the war-torn country build a national cricket team since 2001 when Afghanistan first joined the ICC. They have a decent team. bowlers [are good].

"We are not going to take Afghanistan lightly".

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.

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.

For Afghanistan, it will be a battle of attrition that they have never ever faced before.

"It is an honour for all of us to be part of this Test match".

In Kohli's absence, India are most likely to call up their star spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin, the world's fourth and fifth-ranked Test bowlers respectively. "Our spinners, Ashwin, Jadeja and Kuldeep are experienced and quality spinners".
