|11||Karim Janat||All Rounder|
|12||Gulabdin Naib||All Rounder|
|15||Sharafuddin Ashraf||All Rounder|
Reserves: Afsar Zazai, Farid Ahmed Malik
Batting Line Up
Afghanistan’s main batting lineup has hard hitters of the Red Bowl in T20 format. Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Asghar Afghan, and Usman are reserved as openers for their team in T20 World Cup 2022.
Well, Afghanistan always lacks quality pace attacks as this team currently relies on Medium Pacers. The absence of Pace Attackers will definitely tease them in ICC T20 World Cup 2022. However, Zawalat Zardan, Shapur Zardan, and Qaiz Ahmed will be mainstream bowlers for them.
Bowling Line Up
When it comes to quality Spin attacks, no one can underestimate the power and abilities of Afghan spin bowlers. Currently, Rashid Khan and Mujeed-ur Rahman are the best and full-time spin bowlers available in their squad.
Afghanistan no doubt holds the capability to face all other emerging sides of this event. But due to lack of experience, their players didn’t engage themselves in pressure situations. Having said that, Afghan is still a Hot Contender for ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
