Afghanistan T20 World Cup 2012 Squad

Afghanistan keep on improving but they face a tough task in their first T20 World Cup. They play India and England, they won’t be expecting to win but they defiantly can get a lot out of these two games as Afghanistan seek higher class opposition which will help them improve as a squad and individually. Hamid Hassan makes a return from injury for Afghanistan which will be a huge boost for the squad since he is such an important member of the team. The wicketkeeper Mohammed Shahzad will be vital with the bat since he is a consistent performer and is a clean hitter of the ball who can worry the stronger bowlers in the group.

Squad Members:

Nawroz Mangal (Captain)
Asghar Stanikzai
Dawlat Zadran
Gulbodin Naib
Hamid Hassan
Izatullah Dawlatzai
Javed Ahmadi
Karim Sadiq
Mohammed Nabi
Mohammed Shahzad
Nahibullah Zadran
Mohammed Nasim Baras
Samiullah Shenwari
Shapoor Zadran


Afghanistan v India – September 19
Afghanistan v England – September 21


Afghanistan have a tough group and I don’t see them getting close to India or England in their group stages to even think about advancing to the Super 8’s.
