The Afghanistan cricket team has created history by winning its first ever Test match in just their 2nd game as a Test nation. The Afghans defeated Ireland in Dehradun after having a close contest for 4 days.
Former skipper and bowling all-rounder Mohammad Nabi was ecstatic on the historic victory as he said that the whole team showed great character and resolve at crucial moments throughout the game.
“It's a very historic day for whole of Afghanistan. Every format is different. Test cricket has a different flavor to it. It was a matter of great pride. It shows we are ready for Test cricket,” he added.
Nabi also feels that the victory against Ireland would go a long way in building a reputation for the Afghan Test side as teams would want to play against them if they keep on producing such performances.
