Afghanistan cricket team will play its first ever historic Test against India in India, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) acting secretary, Amitabh Chaudhary confirmed on Monday after the SGM (Special General Meeting).

“Afghans were scheduled to play their first Test in 2019 versus Australia but considering the historic relationship between India and Afghanistan, we decided to host their first Test,” said Chaudhary.

The date & venue for the historic debut test for Afghanistan will be decided in due course of time but it comes as a major boost for Afghanistan cricket with their debut test against a cricket powerhouse after Ireland earlier confirmed their debut test match at home against another Asian cricket powerhouse, Pakistan.
