  • Excellent gesture from the Indian team as they pose with the cup with the Afghanistan squad. Both the teams are seen taking pictures with the cup as we come to an end to the coverage of this game. The visitors have a lot to work on. Whereas, the Indians just showed why they are the number one ranked side in the world. Cricketing action though does not stop here as Day 2 of the WIN-SL Test will start in some time. You can catch that by switching tabs. Till then, take care and goodbye.
  • India captain, Ajinkya Rahane, says it is always an honor to lead the country. He is happy with the way his team batted. Informs they stuck to their basics and it went well for them. Says Afghanistan played really well and they will improve with time.
  • Man of the Match, Shikhar Dhawan, says he is very happy with the way he has been playing. He is happy they finished the match early and now they can rest for the next few days. Reckons the pitch was a little damp and the fast bowlers were getting some assistance but he was clear what he wanted to do and things went his game. He congratulates Afghanistan for reaching this level. He reckons the visitors have learnt a lot from this game and will keep improving.
  • Afghanistan captain, Asghar Stanikzai, says he wants to thank the board to give them this opportunity. Congratulates India for the way they played. Further adds they will learn from this and perform well in the future. Mentions they have played good cricket and admits they knew Test cricket is going to be difficult. Ends by saying their batting was poor and they will look to improve on it.
  • Ravindra Jadeja says the pacers started off really well. He feels his job was to contain runs as the wicket was very flat and there was not a lot of help for the spinners. Reckons the wicket was a different one from that which was played on in the Indian T20 League. Further adds he along with Ashwin planned to restrict the runs and keep it simple. Advises the Afghan batsman to improve their technique.
  • Umesh Yadav says he is pleased to reach that landmark (100 wickets). Further adds he just tried to swing the ball and bowl it in the right areas. Reckons the wicket was a touch slow and he tried bowling it on the right areas. Informs they wanted to prepare themselves before heading to England. He feels Ishant and himself bowled well in a pair and Jadeja and Ashwin also did well later on.
  • Afghanistan then came out to bat after Lunch on Day 2 and their innings lasted only about 28 overs. They were bowled out for a paltry 109 with Ashwin picking up a four-fer. After enforcing the follow-on, on them, they should no signs of improvement as they were once again bowled out for a similar total. Now we have Ravindra Jadeja and Umesh Yadav for an interview.
  • To be honest, it was a complete performance by the Indians. First their batters did well to set a massive first innings score. Both the openers scored a ton. Hardik and Rahul also contributed with half centuries. They scored at a brisk rate and the visitors' bowlers except for Yamin Ahmadzai had no answer to the onslaught. he was their pick of the bowler, finishing with a three-fer.
  • Two days is all it has taken for the mighty Indians to beat the Afghanistan team. Once again it has taken them just a session to bowl out the visitors for the second time in the day. It was Ashwin who got a four-fer in Afghanistan's first innings, this time it is Jadeja. However, Umesh Yadav was the man who set the tone as he ran through the top order. Stanikzai and Shahidi did show some fight but once Jadeja was introduced he made quick work of the middle and lower order to give the hosts a huge win.
  • 38.4OUT! What was that? Brain fade? Maybe. Ashwin tosses this one up outside off, it turns back in. The batsman strangely offers no shot and the ball hits the middle pole. Wafadar stands there in disbelief as the Indians start celebration as they have WON BY AN INNINGS AND 262 RUNS!

  • 36.5Driven towards the mid off region.

  • 35.6OUT! Mujeeb what have you done? Yes, not a lot is expected of you with the bat but you have been defending all this while and maybe should have played another defensive stroke on Jadeja's last ball of the over. The bowler bowls it quick on off, Mujeeb tries to clear mid on but fails to get the desired elevation. Umesh there runs to his left, dives and takes a neat catch. Jadeja gets his fourth, he needs one for a fifer and India need one for a win. 98/9

  • 34.1Outside off, the batsman need not play at those.

  • 32.5OUT! BOWLED 'EM! Brilliant yorker to follow up a few short deliveries. It was right at the base of the off stump. Ahmadzai is maybe not expecting it as he is late in bringing his bat down. The ball sneaks through and hits the off pole. India are now just two wickets away.

Nabi tries to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The ball rolls towards square leg and the batsmen go for a run. The Indians are appealing but the umpire shakes his head. Rahane after a chat with his teammates goes for the review. They take it upstairs and replays show three reds. The hosts are seen circling around Karthik and it maybe him who wanted the review to be taken. Nabi has been given his marching orders. His promotion up the order does not work and India are now just 7 wickets away.
  • Howzat? Not out is the answer to that question. The LBW decision has been challenged. Looks like it is going down leg.

  • 4.1A length ball outside off, left alone.
  • Rahmat Shah is the new man in.
  • 3.6OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Umesh Yadav draws first blood. Goes fuller this time on off, this one swings away a touch. Shahzad with no footwork at all, tries to drive it down the ground. He does not account for the away movement and the ball kisses the outside edge and goes into the mitts of Karthik. The players appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Shahzad starts walking back cheaply, again. 19/1
  • 3.5FOUR! Excellent timing! Slightly straight by Umesh. Shahzad whips it through mid-wicket. Ashwin gives it a chase but then gives up in the end.
