Afghanistan v Ireland first-ever Test starts today

Afghanistan and Ireland have shared a prolific rivalry in the recent years, but there's a fresh wave of excitement as the teams get ready to meet each other in Tests for the first time.

'Afghanistan vs Ireland' has become an increasingly common fixture in the recent past. Just since the start of 2018, they've played each other in 15 limited-overs matches and the rivalry is set to turn a new chapter when they meet for their first Test against each other in Dehradun, starting Friday.

The fact that both Ireland and Afghanistan have only played one Test each to date adds to the occasion. Ireland gave Pakistan a bit of a scare in their maiden men's Test in Malahide in March of 2018. Afghanistan, however, perished to a big innings defeat against India inside two days in Bengaluru.
