What is the venue for India vs Afghanistan one-off Test match? "And while he is dealing with it the others have time to work on their own strategies", said the former West Indies allrounder on Wednesday.

"It is itself history that we are playing the inaugural and historic Test match against the number one team in the world", Stanikzai said. "They have a decent team", he told reporters. "We have succeeded in our plans and we will look play this Test the same way".

Ajinkya Rahane has been named India's Test captain in Virat Kohli's absence.

As Afghanistan get ready to face India in their historic first ever Test match on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter congratulated the people of the nation. "So we are disappointed he is not playing, but little bit happy that we are not going to bowl to him all the time". We are happy to be here and playing India. "When you look at it, all spinners in this contest will be excellent".

In regards to the Afghan spin sensation Rashid Khan, Nair said "Most of us have played him in the T20 but this is a different ball game".

While there are talks that he might play a few games for India A, there's no official word on the matter. "We have to look and see what happens. but his professionalism will help him to adjust and am sure he will come out well". The pitch, which has been prepared under cloudy skies and with plenty of rain in the air, has a fair smattering of grass, but also comes with a reputation for assisting the slow bowlers.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, won't find the going too easy against the seasoned Indian campaigners. "So we have put that in front of them and I think they have worked hard enough to be put out there, we will see what it brings tomorrow", he added. "But at the same time, we look at it as win the Test match and beat India". In two years, they have had household names (like Rashid). "Over the last three days, the focus has been on tuning our minds, especially because we're coming in after two months of the IPL", said Rahane. We are not thinking about Afghanistan as well: "yes, we respect them as our opponent but it's important for us to go out there and give more than our 100 per cent", said the batsman. While the star-studded bowling line-up has hogged most of the limelight, the Afghans would expect their batsmen to contribute equally if they hope for a dream start to their Test journey.
