Narendra Modi hopes historic cricket match will boost ties with Afghanistan

Afghanistan claimed their first Test wicket in the shortened session, but India remain in control on 248/1, with Vijay approaching a century. Dhawan also etched his name in history books as he became the first batsman to slam a century against Afghanistan in a Test match.

With his 12th Test ton, Vijay also became the batsman with most first innings centuries without one in the second innings.

Dhawan's century came off just 88 balls and was punctuated with 19 fours and three sixes. With the M Chinnaswamy track offering a bit of movement for the quicks, and some spin for the slower bowlers, the left-hander looked unperturbed as he took Rashid for three consecutive boundaries, including a six before launching the Mujeeb for another three back to back fours. "But the key is to be watchful and take it as it comes".
