    Cannot believe there is no thread for this created. Correct?

    Bangladesh will tour Afghanistan (India) and play in 3 T20 match series in a new stadium gifted to Afghanistan by BCCI. The stadium is located in Dehra dun.

    Post the T20 series, its the historic test match for Afghanistan against India. Afghanistan apparently are going spin heavy for that test with as many as 4 spinners in the squad.

    I think its a good score and 168 is definitely defendable seeing the bowling attack Afghanistan have. Also how awesome it is to see the crowd supporting Afghanistan. The stadium looks packed and it really feels good. Just proved that India is a cricket crazy nation and that does not necessarily apply only when India is playing. Even in non Indian matches the crowd has been amazing.

    And Bangladesh in deep trouble now. Rashid Khan finally introduced in 11th over and strikes 2 in 2. This guy is a genius and currently the best T20 bowler.

    Absolutely, since they are new emerging team the energy is always 100%. Also the problem with Bangladesh are plenty. They are now without coach for 6 months and all the players because of their recent uprising have been absolutely egoistic. Bangladesh fans and players need to calm down, the progress is going good and a little less ego would always helps.

    Good come back by Afghanistan. Tamim and Rahim were going along nice but they have broken the partnership and taken one more wicket. Still a lot of work left as Tamim is batting in the middle looking well settled and Shakib to bat. They should keep picking up wickets and try and restrict the Deshis to 150 runs.

    Rashid Khan has killed any hopes Bangladesh had for scoring a good total. From 90/2 to 103/6, a first match repeat on cards. Afghanistan just needs to bat well now.

    Bangladesh has clearly come out with no real plan. They have taken Afghanistan too lightly. I expected them to learn from the first game.

    The Afghan's have been really exceptional. Looks like they will give India a good game.

    I am really hoping so. Afghanistan has something that Bangladesh missed during their maiden Test game in India and that is spinners. India recent times have known to struggle against mediocre spinners and her Afghanistan have 2 good quality spinner out which one of them is world class in limited over format. The only interesting thing to watch would be how will Afghanistan cope up with the pressure of being a test side? Its lot different then limited overs.

    Even during Pakistan Ireland match we saw how Ireland struggled in the first innings down to good bowling but also nerves, if Afghanistan win key moments they can definitely have a good game and who knows perhaps even win?

    Also this man is a beast in T20's Rashid Khan.. 4 overs 12 for 4 wickets wow! Consistently he does that. Even in the ICC XI vs West Indies match he took 2 wickets.

    Thats game! What an innings by Mohammad Nabi those hits were monstrous. Afghanistan's first series win against Bangladesh and first series win against a full member nation other then Zimbabwe. Well done :clap. I feel bad for Walsh and Shakib. That face of Rahim was priceless and thank you Afghanistan for that!

    Rashid Khan and Mujeeb are going to be a massive threat to India. If Afghanistan's batting fires, who knows? They don't deserve to be ruled out if who will win that Test match. They are a team who play in good spirit, and they certainly deserve Test status considering how good the Afghan team performed against the likes for Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and WI.I hope these guys give India a fright.
