Afghanistan to play India in Test debut

Dec 11, 2017 - 10:17 PM Afghanistan's inaugural Test cricket match will be against India.

The historic match against the world No.1 Test nation will take place sometime next year in India.

Rahul Johri, chief executive of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, wrote on Twitter: "India to play inaugural Test against Afghanistan, welcome them to five-day cricket."

BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a video on the governing body's Twitter feed: "The general body felt that in view of the history of the two nations it should be India which must play the first Test match with Afghanistan."

Afghanistan and Ireland were granted full Test status by the International Cricket Council in June.

Ireland have already confirmed Pakistan as the opponents for their first foray into Test cricket next May.
