Afghanistan’s tour to India Test Match took place at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. It was only the second day of the test series, but the match concluded when the Indian team defeated afghans by an innings and 262 runs. The Afghans were battered and bruised. They lasted only for about 28 overs in the first innings followed by 39 overs in the second innings.
The same time it was a great Test match for India. The batting performances of Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Hardik Pandya and Lokesh Rahul were brilliant. On the upper hand, the bowling performances of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma made Afghans lose their pace by picking up quick wickets on both innings.
During this event, Shikhar Dhawan created a record of first Indian batsman to score a ton before lunch on the first day of the innings. Before him, Virender Sehwag was the only closest one to this in the history of test cricket.
