Afghanistan name Asia Cup squad

Kabul, (UNI) Afghanistan announced their 17-member squad for Asia Cup 2023, starting August 30.

Afghanistan have named their squad for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023. The event will be played in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

They have made a few changes to the side that faced Pakistan in the recently concluded three-game ODI series. Azmatullah Omarzai and Wafadar Momand miss out on Asia Cup selections. Omarzai had coped a side strain in the series against Pakistan, an ICC report said.

On the other hand, the likes of Karim Janat, Najibullah Zadran and Sharafuddin Ashraf are making comebacks. Janat last played an ODI, his only one, in 2017.

Squad: Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Riaz Hassan, Rahmat Shah, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Alikhil, Rashid Khan, Gulbadin Naib, Karim Janat, Abdul Rahman, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Noor Ahmad, Suliman Safi, Fazalhaq Farooqi.
