Summary

  • DEHRADUN: In less than two weeks, Afghanistan will experience what Bangladesh felt 18 years ago when they played a Test for the first time.
  • They have world class players in the squad and they deserve the Test status,” said Hasan, who has experienced the best and worst times in Bangladesh cricket history, on the eve of the opening T20I.
  • Bangladesh have themselves endured tough time in the longest format ever since they played their inaugural Test against India in 2000.
  • Their Twenty20 opponents this week, Afghanistan, too play India in their inaugural Test in Bengaluru from June 14.
  • “They have exceeded expectations in the shorter formats in the last five-six years and there is no reason why they can’t do it in Tests even though it is a lot tougher than ODIs and T20s,” said Simmons.
