Afghanistan's Test debut met a pretty underwhelming end as they were bowled out not once but twice in a single day as India wrapped up the match in two days. Twitterati, however, had a gala time as they had a lot to ponder over from Mohammad Shahzad's run-out to Hardik Pandya's superhuman throw.
Brief scores: India 474/10 ( Shikhar Dhawan 107, Murali Vijay 105; Yamin Ahmadzai 3/51, Wafadar 2/100) beat Afghanistan 109/10 (Mohammad Nabi 24, Mujeeb Ur Rahman 15; Ravichandran Ashwin 4/27, Ravindra Jadeja 2/18) and 103/10 (Hashmatullah Shahidi 36, Asghar Stanikzai 25; Ravindra Jadeja 4/17, Umesh Yadav 3/26) by an innings and 262 runs.
Shouldn’t have said this
The fact of the day
FYI—India played the first Test match in 1932. India won their first Test match in 1952. India’s first Test win away from home was in 1968. #IndvAfg— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) June 14, 2018
Looks very difficult right now
What if Mohammad Shehzad goes all Sehwag and scores 244 (167) to swing the match?— Dennis Eid Mubarak (@DennisCricket_) June 14, 2018
Because he can. #INDvAFG
BCCI should totally prioritize this
It’s going to be a tough one for the Indian team
Same like picking the right opening batting pair, picking the right Pace Bowling trio is also going to be a tough decision for Virat Kohli in England Series with the likes of Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Shami, Bhuvi & Bumrah. #INDvAFG #CBhaveyoursay— CricIndeed (@CricIndeed) June 15, 2018
Fairplay to this guy
Its not #Afghanistan 's fault to perform like these, they are after all, up against the no. 1 test team. Meanwhile India will hopefully get an extra 3 days of rest now. Can't wait to see our pace attack to bowl in England conditions now. #INDvAFG— Abhishek Vaishnav (@Abhishekvaishnv) June 15, 2018
Looks like MS Dhoni has a competitor
