For years in the contest, especially fighting for qualification into the tournament proper, Afghanistans batting prowess has built a sustainable backbone carried by their opening pair of - Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Mohammad Shahzad. Both are quick run scorers, with GurbazsGurbazs ability as a pacey run chaser providing the calm outlook needed in the Australian pitches, which will make the middle order provide their necessary contributions with minimal cameos if necessary. Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi are the most significant power hitters of the entire bunch to which the lineup would rely upon when the top order wickets fumble down quickly. The pair has a different approach yet somehow similar styles to conquer the opposition bowlers;
Zadrans forte is spinners, whereas tough man Nabi is the torment for medium fast pace units with the dry curated bounce on Australian pitches, making it an essential notion for success.
Lets initiate with the skipper and the deadly spinner himself - the shining idol of the Afghanistan Cricket Team - Rashid Khan. While playing for Adelaide Strikers, KhansKhans 19 wickets contribution with an average of 90 kmph speech as a spinner, the pitches across Australian cities is the zone of prowess for the world-class superstar Rashid Khan. Under his guidance, the following unit of Mujeeb your Rahman and Mohammad Nabi has flourished across the different formats of the game. MujeebsMujeebs dry pitch spells to conduct bounce, even in the ones absent of it, has been something the spinner has proven as a guaranteed wicket-taker during the Big Bash League tournament. What more could be said about All Rounder Mohammad Nabi, known for his 5/15 spell in CPL T20? He is a master in disguise for both the low wet pitches and dry curated ones.
