Afghanistan's cricketers have won their first ever Test match.

They beat Ireland by seven wickets in Dehradun, with almost two days to spare.

Chasing 147 in their fourth innings, Rahmat Shah and Ihsanullah both made half-centuries to guide Afghanistan to their historic maiden win.

Earlier in the match all-rounder Rashid Khan picked up the nation's first five-wicket haul in Tests.
