There is no doubt Afghanistan remains one of the most dangerous T20 teams on the globe. With their mind-boggling performances in the recent T20 series, the Afghan side has stunted everyone and they will pose a serious threat to all other participating teams.
In addition, Asia Afghanistan announced that they will participate in ICC World T20 2021. Group 2 features the Afghan cricket team along with Indian, English, and South African T20 teams.
In T20 World Cup 2021, Afghanistan will be competing for the fifth time in a row. However, they have shown poor performances in previous editions. At the upcoming 2021 T20 World Cup, Afghanistan will field a completely new squad under the leadership of its new captain.
Afghanistan Team Squad for ICC T20 World Cup 2021
A representative team has also been announced by the Afghanistan Cricket Board for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Although there are a few minor changes to Afghanistan Team’s squad, Muhammad Nabi is no longer serving as captain.
As a result of Muhammad Nabi’s leadership, Afghanistan has performed really poorly, and now the selection committee has made big decisions. Afghan spinner Rashid Khan will likely captain Afghanistan in this event, having starred in various domestic T20 leagues.
In the T20 format, Afghan main batsmen include hard-hitters of the Red Bowl. T21 World Cup 2021 is expected to feature Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Asghar Afghan, and Ibrahim Zadran as opening bats.
In Afghanistan, pace attacks are always lacking as the team is currently reliant on medium pacers. There will be an inconvenience for them in 2021 due to the absence of pace attackers. The mainstream bowlers for them will however be Fareed Khan, Gulbadin Naib, and Fazal Niazai.
There is no denying the power and ability of Afghan spin bowlers when talking about the quality spin attacks. They currently have Rashid Khan and Mujeed-ur Rahman in their squad as their best spin bowlers.
The strength of the Afgan team is their spin bowling. They have the luxury of Rashid Khan and Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman, two world-class spinners. Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman is good at handling new balls, and Rashid Khan shows his magic in the middle overs. There is another spinner, Muhammad Nabi. He is another spinner available for the skipper.
The batting lineup of Afghanistan is also an explosive one. Some batters use long handles whenever they want. Hazratullah Zazai is one of them. Muhammad Nabi is known for his hard-hitting ability around the world. Rahmatullah Gurbaz is another technically solid batsman who can open as well.
In all likelihood, Afghanistan is capable of coping with all other emergent outcomes of this event. Their players weren’t able to act under pressure because of a lack of experience. In any case, Afghan is still one of the favorites to win the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
