The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has congratulated Afghanistan for the first ever victory of the Afghan team in Test Cricket.

“Congratulations to Afghanistan on their team’s first ever win in test cricket. The Afghan cricketers have achieved amazing successes in such a short period of their exposure to international cricket,” PM Khan said in a Twitter post.

The Afghanistan National Cricket Team secured its first Test Match victory by defeating Ireland by 7 wickets on Monday.

The Test Match between Afghanistan and Ireland kicked off in Dehradun of India on 15th March.

The Afghan national cricket team made Test debut last year by appearing against the national cricket team of India, which they lost.

The only Test Match between the national teams of Afghanistan and Ireland is being played at the conclusion of a bilateral series which kicked off on 5th March.

The Afghan team managed to defeat Ireland in all 3 matches of Twenty20 Internationals but the One Day International series ended up in draw.
