  • India vs Afghanistan Shikhar Dhawan breaks Virender Sehwag’s record

After the first session, India finished at 158-0, with Dhawan (104 not out) and Murali Vijay (41) batting at the other end.

3 - As many as three players aged under 20 featured in this Test for Afghanistan.

Rashid, who had an terrible start to Test cricket, picked up skipper Rahane's wicket and troubled the batsmen then on.

The list of players to score a century in the first session of the game includes Victor Trumper, Charles Macartney, Don Bradman, Majid Khan and David Warner.

Afghanistan had a tough start on their Test debut as India's opening batsmen struck centuries on the first day of the historic Test with a scoring rate that was at par for a one-dayer.

The left-hander has scored over 100 runs in a session before, though, doing so against Australia on debut in Mohali in 2013, and then against Sri Lanka in Galle previous year.

India's role in Afghan cricket is evident from a tender the External Affairs Ministry recently floated for making a 10-minute movie titled: Afghan Cricketers: The Rising Stars to showcase the rise of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi on Indian soil.

Enroute to his century, Dhawan also became only the sixth batsman in the history of Test cricket to have reached a ton before lunch on the opening day of a Test match.

After winning the toss, skipper Ajinkya Rahane said that it was a historic moment for Afghanistan and that he was really excited about the match.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, won't find the going too easy against the seasoned Indian campaigners. Moreover, more than 90 percent of Dhawan's run came in boundaries as he hit 19 fours and three sixes on his way to a century. "It's important to start well after coming off the IPL". Stanikzai gratefully acknowledged that India provides a lot of financial assistance to Afghan cricketers in India, besides contributing one million dollars for the timely construction of Kandahar International Stadium.

India playing 11: Murli Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane (capt), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav.

E3 2018: The Elder Scrolls VI is real and in pre-production
While the announcement was somewhat overshadowed by Fallout 76 and the announcement of Elder Scrolls 6 , it's a nice little bonus. Starfield , a new IP, is releasing sometime within the next two years if we are to assume based on Bethesda's track record.

Awarded full member status by the International Cricket Council (ICC) alongside Ireland past year, Afghanistan became the 12th test-playing nation after first being recognised by the ICC in 2001.
