The build-up to the historic India-Afghanistan Test has started as the members of Afghanistan cricket team have also reached Bengaluru on Saturday for the one-off historic Test. "For me, there's still a long way to go". I still have this Test match to play and "A" series thereafter. I have worked hard over the last one-and-a-half years. So, I am not thinking too far ahead. Players who have been selected for the series against Ireland and England will undergo the test on June 15.

"It´s fantastic to see two young Afghanistan spinners bamboozle world batsmen", Kumble, the third-highest wicket-taker of all time and now a commentator, told AFP.

Can't really remember the first match I watched on TV but I have loved watching Test matches since childhood.

Among their biggest stars is Rashid Khan, the 19-year-old leg-spin bowler who is one of the world's most sought-after players in the shorter Twenty20 form of the game.

Two India players dropped following fitness testing. "Ultimately, the goal is to play test cricket".

When did you first think Afghanistan could actually play Test matches?

And wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Shahzad also admitted that Afghanistan's spinners, particularly Rashid - who is now ranked number one and number two in T20Is and ODIs respectively - are as good as any other spinners in the world and can push India hard in Bengaluru. "I would like to do well in this Test and go on from there", said Nair, who has experienced highs and lows in his brief global career so far.
