Afghanistan T20I World Cup 2022 Squad Analysis

Since yesterday a lot of World Cup teams are getting announced and since today is the deadline day so more squads will be announced today and we will do an analysis of those teams tomorrow but one more squad was announced yesterday and that was the Afghanistan team and they have shown in the Asia Cup that they are a force to be reckoned with and so we are here analyzing their squad.

Before we get into the details, I want to say that I love the Afghanistan team so much and all neutral fans want to see us do well also and they have announced a strong team with some gaps which we will talk about below. Afghanistan will have to work hard as the pitches in Australia will not be as spinner friendly. So, let’s look at their squad and do the analysis.

Mohammad Nabi- Captain


Hazratullah Zazai

Ibrahim Zadran

Najibullah Zadran

Usman Ghani

Darwish Rasooli


Rashid Khan

Azmatullah Omarzai


Rahmanullah Gurbaz


Fazalhaq Farooqi

Naveen Ul Haq

Fareed Ahmed

Mohammad Saleem Safi


Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Qais Ahmed


The Afghanistan team has a very strong top order where the batters can play attacking cricket and the strike rates are also very good. The spinners are their big strength always.


Their middle order is a big weakness like in the case of Pakistan as none of their middle order batters have a good strike rate and they cannot build an innings if the top order collapses. Their fast bowling is a weakness in Australia pitches and they can get a hammering.


This Afghanistan team has the opportunity to shock the world in this World Cup and Rashid Khan has the opportunity to be the hero with both bat and ball and Rahmanullah Gurbaz has the chance to shine on the biggest stage.


Like I said before, their fast bowling can be taken apart by the other teams so that will remain a big Threat and also their good spinners might not get the same help as they get in Asia.
