Shikhar Dhawan is the Man of the Match.

Shikhar Dhawan, Man of the Match: Really happy about the way I have been playing. It's good that we finished the match early because we will feel more fresh before going to Ireland. It was a damp pitch. Of course the ball was doing a bit but I was clear in my mind as to what I wanted to do. Feels special to have scored a hundred before lunch. First of all, I would like to congratulate them because they have reached here. I would like to wish them Eid Mubarak because it is a special day for them. And if cricket is growing, we can't ask for any more. I would like to thank the audience who have come and supported Test cricket.

Ajinkya Rahane, India captain: Special feeling to lead your country. We wanted to be ruthless. Guys like Shikhar and Vijay got those hundreds, Rahul chipped in and Pandya was magnificent at the end. We didn't wanted to take it lightly. Important to stick to our basics. Important to create some good habits, but credit to Afghnistan, they were fantastic. From here on it is only upwards and onwards for them The way their bowlers, even their seamers were bowling, especially in the third session yesterday.

Asghar Stanikzai, Afghanistan captain: Thanks to ACB and BCCI board to give us this opportunity. We hadn't played a Test match before this and we've learnt a lot. In future when we will play Test matches we will know how to play against a Full Member side. India is number one side. Yes we are surprised, we have a very good side.  We know Test cricket is very different. We have a lot of time and camps to work on our weakness. When you play like that it is upsetting. Thanks to the crowd as well, supporting both side, it felt like we were in Kabul.

India vs Afghanistan, LIVE cricket score, Only Test, Day 2 at Bengaluru, Latest updates: India have dismissed Afghanistan twice in two sessions and beat them by an innings and 262 runs. It is as comprehensive as it gets. Jadeja missed his fifer but he won't mind this has been an outstanding collective effort from the bowlers.

Day 1 Report: Debutants Afghanistan clawed back with five wickets in the final session to spoil India's run feast, built on rollicking centuries from openers Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay as the hosts reached 347/6 at stumps on the opening day of the one-off Test on Thursday.

All-rounders Hardik Pandya (10 not out) and Ravichandran Ashwin (7 not out) survived a few scares before heading back when the umpires dislodged the bails for the day, affected by two rain interruptions at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

While India ruled the roost in most parts of the three sessions, Afghanistan had their moments in the second and final session with the wickets of Dhawan (107), and the quick dismissals of Vijay (105) and KL Rahul (54) off consecutive overs.

Troubled by two rain breaks during which Vijay found himself stuck in the 90s, the Tamil Nadu opener kept his composure to notch up his 12th Test hundred in the final session.

Vijay hit pacer Wafadar for a four over point to bring up his ton and together with Rahul, who by then had registered his half-century, forged a valuable 112-run stand for the second wicket.

With his 12th Test ton, Vijay also became the batsman with most first innings centuries without one in the second innings.

But soon after reaching his century off 143 deliveries, Vijay found himself trapped leg before by Wafadar even as the review did not help his cause.

The visitors struck in the very next over when pacer Yamin Ahmadzai induced a faint inside edge off Rahul which uprooted his off-stick, and as a result brought Pujara and Rahane together.

Rahane survived a caught behind decision early in his innings before being saved by a review but failed to make the most of the opportunity as Rashid Khan caught him plumb in front after two frustrating sessions.

Rashid could have immediately got his second Test wicket in the form of the dangerous Pujara, who on 30 was dropped at first slip by Mohammed Nabi.

But Nabi soon rectified the mistake with a superb catch at leg slip to pack back the Saurashtra batsman off the 17-year-old spinner Mujeeb.

India immediately lost another wicket when stumper Dinesh Karthik (4) departed off an unnecessary run-out with the scoreboard at 334/6.

Thereafter, Ashwin and Pandya joined forces and the duo played out the rest of the day cautiously.

Earlier, opting to bat after winning the toss, India got off to a breezy start with Dhawan smashing a quickfire century to pile up 158/0 at lunch in the lop-sided opening session.

Dhawan looked in sublime touch right from the start, punishing the pace duo of Ahmadzai and Wafadar for glorious boundaries before taking his Sunrisers Hyderabad teammate Rashid to the cleaners.

Dhawan looked unstoppable and got to his seventh Test ton in a mere 87 balls even as the Afghan spin trio of Nabi, Rashid and Mujeeb seemed all at sea with this format.

For the Afghans, Ahmadzai was the pick of the bowlers with a couple of wickets while Wafadar, Rashid and Mujeeb contributed with one wicket apiece.
