Afghanistan celebrate the victory against Bangladesh in Dehradun

After routing Bangladesh 3-0 in the just-concluded three-match T20I series, Afghanistan skipper Asghar Stanikzai has asserted that the recent clean sweep victory has lifted the morale of his team ahead of the one-off Test against India at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru from June 14.

"Great preparation for the Test match against India -- the morale is high," the skipper said after his side pipped Bangladesh by one run in the third and final T20I on Thursday.

"Last couple of years we have performed well. We want to achieve it for Afghanistan. You see the batsmen, bowlers are all in good form."

Leg-spinner Rashid Khan, the architect of Afghanistan's 3-0 whitewash of Bangladesh, might well be the front man in Bengaluru and he is looking forward to the big occasion.

"Full credit to my fitness -- if you're fit, you can deliver in any department; it doesn't matter whether I'm playing in league cricket or the national team, I just want to enjoy," he said.
