The 25-year-old has also been named in the India A squad that will tour England next month.

Good-looking Afghanistan cricket team has landed in Bengaluru for their debut Test since earning the all-important status a year ago in June.

The one-off Test against India will be Afghanistan's first step towards being ranked on the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings and a chance for their gifted players to enter the individual rankings after making a mark in limited-overs cricket.

"Nevertheless India have the stronger batting line-up of the two teams and their variety in attack could help negate England's middle-order strength if the openers continue to fail".

"I have managed to contribute in the field, with ball and bat". "For me, there's still a long way to go".

"My shoulder has been an issue ongoing for the last couple of years and it is just managing it and looking after it best way I can", he told BBC Radio's Test Match Special during England's shock six-run one-day global by Scotland in Edinburgh on Sunday. I am not thinking too far ahead and obviously the A series is in England, so the preparations are going on well.

The BCCI said the Indian team management has requested the services of India A pacers Mohammed Siraj and Rajneesh Gurbani to prepare for the Afghan match.

"I would only say that all of our spinners are proven wicket-takers in Test cricket".

Trevor Bayliss had earlier revealed that the plan will be for Anderson, who played a starring role in the recent win over Pakistan at Headingley, to take an initial break from the game before stepping up his rehab as the India series approaches, and Anderson revealed a plan to return to action against Roses rivals Yorkshire in late July.

Rashid had a successful stint in the recently-concluded 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), where he finished with a total of 21 wickets for runner-ups Sunrisers Hyderabad. "Ultimately, the goal is to play test cricket".

Even before I came into the squad, the seniors would aspire to get the Test status. "Mujeeb, Rashid, Nabi we also have Zahir Khan, who didn't get to play for Rajasthan [Royals], but he's also one such bowler - you'll see next year [in the IPL], so Alhamdulillah we have very good spinners", Shahzad said. You know, you are not looking to get that. "I would like to do well in this Test and go on from there", said Nair, who has experienced highs and lows in his brief worldwide career so far.
