Interesting day,

Wouldn't have been surprised to see heads drop after that mammoth opening stand but the Afghanistani spirit remained unmoved.

Be very interesting to see how they cope with the bat.

Good recovery from Afg, and Rashid. India have been producing a lot of bowlers' pitches in the last three years, so it remains to be seen what is a par score. If this is the sort of track SA got, then India have enough runs to win two Tests.

So 50-5 suggests maybe there was more in the pitch than Afg extracted.

Tough for the debutants when they have barely played first class cricket, quite apart from Tests.

Might be 2 days test match. Afghan's are not yet out of T20 mode. Batted just over 27.5 overs in first innings.

22-3! This isn't working.

Ashwin returning better figures than Jadeja. Hope Shanky takes note... ;)

Excellent stuff by Team India. :bow: Huge win by innings and 262 runs and more importantly within just 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better performance.

The Afghan batters seemed to struggle against spin. Also they haven't yet got to grips with playing a patient innings that a 5 day test demands.

Wasn't going to be an easy one first up though and they will get better.
