The Afghanistan national cricket team captain Asghar Stanikzai has cautioned India ahead of Afghanistan’s historic test match debut scheduled to kick off on Thursday.

Stanikzai has expressed confidence that the recent drubbing of Bangladesh has lifted the morale of the side, despite the win coming in the shortest format of the game , according to Times of India.

“Great preparation for the Test match against India – the morale is high,” the skipper said after his side pipped Bangladesh by one run in the third and final T20I here on Thursday.

“Last couple of years we have performed well. We want to achieve it for Afghanistan. You see the batsmen, bowlers are all in good form,” he told Times of India.

Leg-spinner Rashid Khan, the architect of Afghanistan’s 3-0 whitewash of Bangladesh, might well be the frontman in Bengaluru and he is looking forward to the big occasion.

“Full credit to my fitness – if you’re fit, you can deliver in any department; it doesn’t matter whether I’m playing in league cricket or the national team, I just want to enjoy,” he said.
