Afghanistan cricket team has been a true story of underdogs who have battled all odds to achieve their own cricketing destiny.
Afghanistan recently added a feather in their cap in cricket when they gained Test status along with Ireland. While Test cricket won’t be new to the Irish, the Afghans are set to embark into a whole new journey with their test debut against India.
They brace themselves to rough it up with the Test playing nations by taking on the number one Test side for a single test match. The match will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru from 14-18 June.
While India is expected to rest their key players and treat the match as a warm up for the away series against England in July, Afghanistan will look to capitalize and come all guns blazing to cause an upset. Indian skipper Virat Kohli has already confirmed of his absence due to his commitments with Surrey for County Championships during that period.
