India got all out for 474 against Afghanistan in debut test

Ravindra Jadeja and Ishant Sharma also bagged a couple of wickets each, as Afghanistan was bundled out for 109 in the 28 over.

There were two minor milestones for India. We did not take Afghanistan lightly.

"The more matches they play, the more they will learn".

They crumbled like a soaked biscuit in tea, the Indians knowing just how to stifle them, using pace and spin in equal measure to blank them out.

"I am proud of the men who championed cricket in Afghanistan in the dawn of the century and believed in themselves that one day Afghanistan will play against the best in the world", he said. It is more about the manner of losing. "We hadn't played a Test match before this and we've learned a lot", he said. "It's a mountain to climb", he said.

The first innings was all over in less than 28 overs.

To help them get more exposure, the BCCI has also decided that Afghanistan will also get to play a practice match against teams visiting India. They were eventually bowled out for 103 in the 39 over.

The duo added 67 runs in only 13 overs, taking advantage of the old ball which wasnt doing much.

Unlike in the first innings, there was some semblance of resistance from the middle order.

Dhawan also congratulated Afghanistan for its Test debut and said with time they will definitely improve in the traditional format of the game as they did in the limited overs.

Umesh Yadav gets his second wicket as Shahzad opens the face of his bat, gets edged and lands straight into the hands of Gabbar. The hosts went into lunch with the score reading 158/0 with Dhawan batting on 104, having become only the sixth batsman in the history of Test cricket to complete a century in the first session of play. "We were surprised with the match ending in two days because our team is good".

Earlier, all-rounder Pandya mixed caution with aggression en route his stroke-filled knock as India posted a commendable total, which seemed to be good enough for the minnows.

Earlier Hardik Pandya hit 71 to give India a formidable first innings total after the hosts resumed on 347-6.

Pandyas innings had 10 boundaries and he faced 91 balls.

Afghanistan had fought back well in the final session on their first day of Test cricket, but Pandya and Ashwin extended their seventh-wicket stand before Yamin Ahmadzai - the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3-51 - removed the spinner.

India begins a tour of Ireland and England at the end of the month.

In other words, Afghanistan scored 212 in their two innings, the same as the two Indian openers, Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan.

Ravichandran Ashwin came to the act and ended with four wickets.

India's Ravindra Jadeja celebrates the dismissal of Afghanistan's Afsar Zazai during the second day of one-off cricket test match in Bangalore, India, Friday, June 15, 2018.

"In future when we play a match, we know now how to play against a full member nation like India".
