ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022: Balanced Afghanistan all set to fire in big event; Leggie Qais Ahmad gets a place. Afghanistan T20 World Cup complete squad analysis.
With close to a month left for the start of ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia, almost all the teams have announced their squads for the tournament, and the emerging Asian giants Afghanistan have named their squad as well a few days back.
The team has done quite well especially in the shorter formats of the game for quite some time now and they will be eager to put on yet another spirited show and if possible, go the distance.
Afghanistan led by Mohammad Nabi are one of the teams where players play leagues across the world and might need very less time to get acclimatised to the conditions of Australia as some of their player play the Big Bash League (BBL). Their participation rate in BBL is more than the other participating nations, so they will come better prepared in that aspect.
Afghanistan players also have an advantage of playing most of their cricket in United Arab Emirates (UAE), where the boundaries are bigger and the case with respect to most of the Australian stadiums is the same. The Afghanistan players are better served in that respect too.
