Bagawati: Afghan cricketers join the Indian team for trophy posing. I have never seen such scenes.
...
Both Indian and Afghanistan players pose with the trophy
...
Bagawati: Afghanistan should take this a lesson and move forward. Maybe too much of emotions heading into the Test, the struggles. Ashwin cleans up the last man. What an emphatic victory this for Team India. Afghanistan's Test debut lasts little less than two days. That's not a great start but certainly plenty of experience.
...
Bagawati: Rahane said that India will be ruthless and they have been.  What a clinical performance this from Team India. There was only one team out on the park and that was Indis
...
Aadya: Pandya and Umesh aren't on the field. Nair and Kuldeep substituting for them. Ishant will bowl now.
...
Aadya: Rashid was using the sweep effectively to fuller balls - Jadeja pushed him on the backfoot off the first ball itself, and followed it with another one that shot into the stumps
...
Aadya: With that dismissal, the Indian fans, who had been subdued to the partnership, are back on their feet.

Aadya: Shahidi paused for a second and a half before facing the ball from Ashwin, surveying the leg side for a vacant space. As soon as he got a shorter one he pulled it to the empty mid-wicket region. Smart batting!
...
Aadya: Umesh is back to bowl. Three slips for him. No one near the bat. The two batsmen seem to have got their eye in, and are moving their feet more now. Stanikzai is still shuffling on the back foot the moment the ball is released.
...
Aadya: Umesh is out of the ground, Nair comes in
...
Aadya: Vijay and Pandya are doing a small dance mid-pitch. Pandya then goes to Rahul, and they replay the same step
...
Aadya from the stadium: The Indians are patting Karthik's back. It was his call to take the review. Now the crowd is echoing the sentiment, chanting 'DK, DK'.

Vignesh from desk: Yes, the fans watching the match on TV certainly heard something on the lines of "we can go, worst case will be umpire's call" from the stump-mic.
...
Aadya: Dhawan does his trademark celebration, and is engulfed by his teammates. The replays of Dhawan on the big screen bring out cheers from the crowd.
...
Aadya: There's a short midwicket and short square leg to gobble up any offering by the batsman off a short ball.
...
Aadya: The players are out, followed by the Afghan batsmen. The burly Shahzad has a small chat with Jadeja as he walks out. Three slips are back in place for him.
...
Aadya: Ishant is back on the field, with the rest of the players slowly trickling out. The tall pacer is warming up, rolling his arm over along with Umesh Yadav.
...
Aadya: Rahane seems to have indicated to the umpire that they'll continue to bowl, which means India will enforce the follow on
...
Aadya: For the last pair, slip, leg slip, short leg and silly point close to the bat.
...
Aadya: KL Rahul is out of the field, he was in some discomfort after putting in the slide.
...
Aadya: Ashwin continues with his spell, Jadeja could be bowling next from the other end.
...
Aadya: Rahul is wearing shin pads underneath, he tried to put in a slide in the deep, but his pads got stuck in the surface.
...
Aadya: Jadeja is stretching himself and warming up. He could be bowling from Ashwin's end in the next over.
