Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah is scheduled to witness the historic moment when Afghanistan embarks on a new journey and makes its debut in test cricket at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru tomorrow.
It will be Afghanistan's first test match after gaining the status of test playing nation last year.
Officials said cricket has become a "unifying factor" in cementing ties between the two countries.
India has been actively engaged in reconstruction activities in the war-ravaged country and has already spent around USD 2 billion in various projects and capacity building initiatives.
Earlier this year, India had decided to undertake another batch of 108 community development projects in the war-torn country.
It had helped the country in the construction of cricket stadiums including in Kandahar.
Several Afghan cricket players received training and coaching from Indian coach in their formative years.
