Live updates from day 2 of one off Test between India and Afghanistan


17:51 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Bagawati: Afghan cricketers join the Indian team for trophy posing. I have never seen such scenes.

17:50 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Both Indian and Afghanistan players pose with the trophy

17:25 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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.

17:18 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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

16:49 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: Pandya and Umesh aren't on the field. Nair and Kuldeep substituting for them. Ishant will bowl now.

16:45 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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

16:26 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: With that dismissal, the Indian fans, who had been subdued to the partnership, are back on their feet.

Aadya: Afghan fans cheering every boundary. The team might have stumbled, but the fans are showing no lack of support from the stands.

16:09 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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!

16:08 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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.

15:26 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: Umesh is out of the ground, Nair comes in

15:18 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: Vijay and Pandya are doing a small dance mid-pitch. Pandya then goes to Rahul, and they replay the same step

15:14 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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.

15:12 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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.

15:05 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: There's a short midwicket and short square leg to gobble up any offering by the batsman off a short ball.

14:41 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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.

14:36 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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.

14:18 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: Rahane seems to have indicated to the umpire that they'll continue to bowl, which means India will enforce the follow on

14:15 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: For the last pair, slip, leg slip, short leg and silly point close to the bat.

13:52 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: KL Rahul is out of the field, he was in some discomfort after putting in the slide.

13:51 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: Ashwin continues with his spell, Jadeja could be bowling next from the other end.

13:49 (IST)15 JUN 2018

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.

13:48 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: Jadeja is stretching himself and warming up. He could be bowling from Ashwin's end in the next over.

13:43 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya: For the new batsman, Rahane has a short leg, a short midwicket, one slip and a forward short leg. Pandya is at backward point.

13:41 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - For the new batsman, Rahane has a short leg, a short midwicket, one slip and a forward short leg. Pandya is at backward point.

13:30 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Dhawan is not on the field, Karun Nair is fielding for him.

13:19 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Ashwin takes the fifth wicket for the hosts by turning the ball enough to slip through the defences of the skipper. Fans must be hoping Nabi will bring some stability, to this tumbling innings.

13:10 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Ishant is making Stanikzai play, there are two slips and a gully, there's a short cover and a mid-off. There's also Pandya at third man. Pandya to bowl

12:56 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - The Indian pacers are breathing fire at the moment, keeping their lengths up and pushing the batsmen on the back foot.

12:49 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Ishant and Umesh are running in hard

12:28 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Two gully in place for Javed Ahmadi in the form of Rahane and Pandya.

12:18 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Shahzad living on the 'edge' at the moment. Two streaky boundaries, and a lot of oohs and aahs in the first over. Ishant could be targeting the batsman with the short one soon. There's a leg gully, helmet and all, in Vijay. No conventional gully.

12:15 (IST)15 JUN 2018

We're underway

12:13 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - The umpires have made their way to the middle, followed by the fielding team. The Afghan openers are the last ones to enter the field. Umesh Yadav is all set to bowl the first ball. The crowd is on their feet, as Mohammad Shahzad will face the opening ball. Three slipsand a gully, a backward point in Pandya. Vijay at short leg

12:03 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Ishant and Umesh are gently bowling on the side pitch, along with Bharath Arun. The support staff is giving Dinesh Karthik, and the slips: Pujara, Vijay and KL Rahul some catching practice. Hardik Pandya has joined the pace duo and is bowling with his cap on. Jadeja separately bowling on the side pitch, getting his rhythm in. Dinesh Karthik, on the far side, is getting catching lessons.

12:03 (IST)15 JUN 2018

The match is set to begin

12:02 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Bagawati - Welcome back post lunch: The Indians are out on the field and are warming up. Afghanistan are set to bat for the first time in Test cricket

11:42 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Kuldeep and Shardul getting some bonus batting practice at the NCA ground

11:38 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - From 318-3 to 474 all out, Afg did well to pull things back in the last session yesterday, but gave away a few extra this morning, letting the lower wag and take the hosts close to 500.

11:32 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Short leg has now moved to leg slip for Ishant against Rashid. Mujeeb will now bowl from the other end.

11:18 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Umesh in no mood to defend the loose ones. Out comes a big swipe and sends it to midwicket. He follows it with a gem of a stroke, a lofted extra cover drive that has brought the crowd to its feet.

Wafadar gets his act right on the third ball, directs one right on Umesh's helmet. Somehow fended away.

Umesh being the perfect tail end pinch hitter, tonking the ball around. A feather touch off Ishant, a genuine edge past the keeper, brings up Wafadar's 100.

11:12 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Rashid has been employed to quickly wrap up the innings. Ishant, with his long strides forward, will be looking to keep him at bay.

11:09 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Manish - No slips, defensive fields and Pandya gets away there. Good ball.

And then his flamboyance gets the better of him, tries the ramp stroke, gloves it, Wafadar gets the reward.

11:05 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Two slips and a silly point for Ishant. The pressure is being pressed on him straightaway.

10:56 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Manish - Say hello to Test cricket, Afghanistan, say hello to being under the pump and then unraveling in the heat. Sloppy work, they are now looking hassled, are the Afghans. Erratic fielding, miscommunication and plenty of slip ups

10:47 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Jadeja is slowly looking to get the run flow going. After breaking the shackles against Nabi in the last over, he's collected another boundary and looks comfortable against pace.

There's a fly slip in the form of Nabi, to tackle Pandya's ambitious upper cuts.

The move to rile up Pandya seemed to have almost worked. After having ducked to the odd bouncer, Pandya took this one on and almost skied a catch to long leg.

The chatter between Wafadar and Pandya continues.

10:30 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - There's a short one from Wafadar to test Pandya. Hardik sways, and then has a little chit chat with the bowler.

The crowd goes loud as one of the Afghan fielders hands Pandya his bat. Drinks have been taken, with Nair doing his usual duties.

10:22 (IST)15 JUN 2018

Aadya - Nabi to bowl now, replaces Rashid. Maybe a change of ends for Rashid next over. 
With only two fielders on the off, Nabi is bowling tight, not giving Pandya any room
