Dhawan and Vijay dominated the opening session after stand-in Indian skipper Ajinkya Rahane won the toss and chose to bat in overcast conditions. All guys have first-class experience. The Delhi southpaw has now become the only Indian to score a century in the opening session of a Test match.

Dhawan hit 19 fours and three sixes as he set about the Afghan bowlers including spin sensation Rashid Khan, smashing three boundaries in the teenager´s opening over to bring up his 50.

As far as Playing XI is concerned, India has gone into the match with three openers, leaving out middle-order batsman Karun Nair to make space for in-form KL Rahul to bat at number 4.

Ahmadzai bowled Rahul, who dragged a delivery on to his stumps, and Wafadar trapped Vijay lbw to lift Afghan spirits.

"The whole world knows that (we have good spinners like) Rashid Khan, Mujeeb, Nabi, Rahmat Shah, Zahir Khan", Stanikzai was quoted as saying by ESPN. Dinesh Karthik plays his first Test match since January 2010. "But the key is to be watchful and take it as it comes". "Today is that historic day".

Afghan cricket grew out of refugee camps in Pakistan where many families were based after they fled conflict in the 1980s and 1990s. "They have a decent team", he told reporters. It is a historic moment for Afghanistan as they would now become the 12th nation to play Test cricket.

Since gaining ODI status in 2009 the Afghans have made giant strides and qualified for their second 50-over World Cup in England and Wales next year. They have also been part of four Twenty20 World Cups.

"The terror in our home area meant we did not have access to an education while growing up". Stanikzai gratefully acknowledged that India provides a lot of financial assistance to Afghan cricketers in India, besides contributing one million dollars for the timely construction of Kandahar International Stadium.

The rain came at stopped the play after 45.1 overs.

Last month, eight people were killed and dozens were wounded by multiple explosions at a cricket match in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad, illustrating the difficulties the country has faced in developing sports.
