IND vs AFG Only Test, Day 1: Dhawan dismissed for 107

Vijay is unbeaten on 72-ball 41.

This comes as the historic test match between Afghanistan and India will kick off from Thursday in Bengaluru city of India. He hit his IPL-mate Rashid for three boundaries in his first over in Test cricket.

Rahane said it would be an "honour" for every Indian player to be part of the match and acknowledged Afghanistan's big moment on the cricket field. However, Rashid Khan had a flawless chance to dismiss the unsafe Dhawan in the 20 over, when the Afghans went for a review in an appeal for LBW.

Neither Rashid Khan nor Mujeeb Ur Rehman could trouble the batsmen.

The debutants will hope for a turnaround in the second session, and will hope to put on an improved show.

When is India vs Afghanistan one-off Test match?

Karun Nair, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav and Navdeep Saini could not make it to India's playing XI as KL Rahul set to bat in the middle order with all the three openers are in the team.

But Rahane, who is standing in as captain for Virat Kohli, said there was no room for complacency in cricket. "They have a decent team... bowlers (are good)", he told reporters on the eve of the one-off Test. With Vijay playing a sedate innings at the other end, Dhawan looked unstoppable and got to his seventh Test ton in mere 87 balls even as the famed Afghan spin trio of Mohammed Nabi, Rashid and Mujeeb Ur Rahman seemed all at sea with this format. "In Afghanistan, the brilliant thing is that a lot of the young talent that is coming through is spinners because they all follow Rashid, they follow Nabi, so because of that our spin department is very strong from below".

Having won all their last six Test series at home in the previous season, the Indians are expected to sail through easily as they aim to start the season on a high and take the confidence to the five-Test rubber in England.
