The Afghanistan team, who defeated the West Indies in the T20 series after the loss in the ODI series, would like to become the first team in the world to win this Test and win three out of their first four Tests. Afghanistan defeated Ireland and Bangladesh after losing their first Test against India last year. If she beats the West Indies in this Test, a new record will be made.
For the spinners, the batsmen are expected to have a rigorous examination on the pitch. The same behavior of the pitch was seen in the draw missed practice match recently and in the first innings, no team could reach the 200 mark in front of the moving balls. Both the West Indies and Afghanistan teams, who are considered to be strong in batting, will face the challenge of coming out of the T20 glut. The batsmen will have to show their ability to play on the wicket of the spinners.
The team which will be more successful in both of these, is likely to be handed over. Looking at Afghanistan, no batsman could show the ability to stick and play except for Rahmat Shah in ODIs and T20 series. On the other hand, the West Indies, led by all-rounder Jason Holder, have the likes of Shai Hope, Craig Braithwaite and Roston Chase. This aspect favors the Caribbean team. At the same time, all eyes will also be on Afghan captain Rashid Khan, who has taken five or more wickets three times in the last four Test innings.
Afghanistan will field three spin bowlers Rashid, Cass Ahmed and Zaheer Khan in favorable conditions for the spinners. At the same time, in the West Indies, the spin-off chase and heavy-hitting cricketer Rahkim will be on Cornwall. Karim Janat, who performed strongly in T20, could be included in the squad in place of Afghan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi, who has retired from Test cricket.
An international Test match will be played in Uttar Pradesh’s capital Lucknow after 25 years. Earlier in the year 1994, the Test match between India and Sri Lanka was played at KD Singh Babu Stadium, in which India won by an innings and 119 runs.
