Shikhar Dhawan started aggressively from the word go, taking the attack to an inexperienced Afghanistan attack while Murali Vijay struggled to get going. He was particularly aggressive on Afghanistan spinners Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. He became the first Indian to score a hundred before Lunch on the first day of a test match and the second Indian after Hardik Pandya to score a hundred before lunch on other days. Shikhar Dhawan was finally dismissed for 107 off just 96 balls by Yamin Ahmadzai.
