Afghanistan win their first-ever Test match

Afghanistan beats Ireland by seven wickets which stitched history in Dehradun on Monday. Chasing 147 for the win, Afghanistan got there thanks to a 100-plus run stand between Rahmat Shah and Ihsanullah Janat. The game, however, was set up by the bowlers for Afghanistan. Seven wickets in the match by tricky leg-spinner Rashid Khan, including a fifer in the second innings, meant Afghanistan didn’t have a big target to chase. The finish did come with a boundary with Shahidi pulling the James Cameron delivery to deep square fence to begin euphoric scenes in Dehradun.
