ICC World Cup 2019: Afghanistan full squad, Afghanistan complete fixtures

One of the most exciting prospects of ICC World Cup 2019 is the entry of Afghanistan in the showpiece event. Riding on tremendous growth, the Afghanistan team has also gained Test status recently and now they are entering the most important event in ODI cricket.

The team features some superstars so they can be expected to make some upsets in the tournament. So better watch them.

 

Afghanistan World Cup 2019 squad 

Gulbadin Naib (c), Aftab Alam, Dawlat Zadran, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Noor Ali Zadran, Rashid Khan, Asghar Afghan, Hamid Hassan, Hazrat Zazai, Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Najibullah Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Samiullah Shinwari

 

Afghanistan looks to make a statement

The presence of superstar cricketers such as Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi is Afghanistan’s strength but will their spinners be effective in England where the wickets will be flat and only a little turn will be available?

Also, a lot depends on how their batsmen cope up with the English conditions and the wickets. Afghanistan is used to playing on slow and low Asian pitches where the ball has a little bounce. And this is how they have become a strong force in limited overs cricket.

Hence it will be interesting to see Afghanistan’s temperament in this big tournament.
