Afghanistan Vs West Indies, Cricket Score One-Off Test Match.
Afghanistan in their last Test match thrashed Bangladesh by 224 runs. The win Afghanistan’s first at home, saw Rahmat Shah become the nation’s first-ever Test centurion, while Rashid Khan, who captained the team, became Afghanistan’s first-ever bowler to complete a 10-wicket haul. They will hope to continue the fairytale run in the five-day format but will have to do so without Mohammad Nabi, who called quits from the longest format after the Bangladesh Test.
West Indies, on the other, were thrashed 0-2 by India at home. Afghanistan, however, are not India, which will make this match an even contest. In Jason Holder, West Indies not only have an experienced captain but also the world’s best Test all-rounder. Kraigg Brathwaite and Roston Chase showed themselves in good stead against India, while youngsters Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope will want to come out with the bat following a disappointing ODI and T20I series.
