Ashgar Afghan made his international debut way back in 2009 against Scotland and after a few years was even made the captain of the Afghanistan cricket team.
He became captain of Afghanistan in 2015 and since then he has taken his side to numerous wins in big cricketing events. He is the pioneer of Afghanistan cricket’s growth in the last 4-5 years.
Under his leadership, Afghanistan has caused numerous upsets in marque events including a win against world T20 champions Afghanistan in world t20 2016. That year, Afghanistan was the only team to beat West Indies in the world cup.
Afghanistan grew from strength to strength under Ashgar Afghan. He also got Afghanistan through to the world cup 2019 by qualifying in the qualifiers.
But currently, he has been removed as captain from all formats and Gulbadin will be leading Afghanistan come world cup 2019. He is an invaluable player for Afghanistan who bats in the middle order and binds the batting order of Afghanistan. We should hope the best from Ashgar Afghan come world cup 2019.
