The fact that Afghanistan remains one of the most dangerous teams on the planet when it comes to T20 cricket is beyond doubt. The Afghan side has stunned everyone with their mind-boggling performance in the recent T20 series; this makes them a serious threat to all the teams that will be taking part in the series.

The Asia Afghanistan team also announced that they will be participating in the ICC World T20 2022 tournament. As part of Group 1, Afghanistan’s cricket team will compete against the teams of Australia, England, and New Zealand for the T20 World Cup.

There will be a fifth time in a row that Afghanistan will be competing in the T20 World Cup 2022. However, in previous editions of the competition, they have shown poor performances. Under the leadership of its new captain, Afghanistan will field a completely new squad at the upcoming T20 World Cup, which will be held in 2022 in England.

There has also been an announcement made by the Afghanistan Cricket Board that a representative team will be participating in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Muhammad Nabi serves as the captain of the Afghanistan Team squad.

The performance of Afghanistan has been really good under Muhammad Nabi’s leadership, and the selection committee has now made big decisions based on those results. With Rashid Khan having played in a variety of domestic T20 tournaments in the past, Afghanistan is likely to do well in this event.

Among the main batsmen of Afghan bats in the T20 format, there are those from the Red Bowl who are hard-hitters. Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Asghar Afghan, and Ibrahim Zadran are expected to be the opening batsmen at the T20 World Cup 2022.

The pace attack is always lacking in Afghanistan due to the fact that the team mainly depends on medium pacers at the moment. There will be a problem for them in 2022 as a result of the absence of pace attackers, which will be an inconvenience for them. However, they will rely heavily on Fareed Khan, Gulbadin Naib, and Fazal Niazai to be their main bowlers in the upcoming season.

With regards to the quality spin attacks that Afghan spin bowlers can produce, there is no denying their power and ability. The two best spin bowlers they have in their squad at the moment are Rashid Khan and Mujeed-ur Rahman.

There is no doubt that the Afghan team’s strength is their spin bowling. The team has the luxury of having Rashid Khan and Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman, two world-class spinners, at their disposal. Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman is a good player with new balls, and Rashid Khan is one of the best players in the middle overs.  Muhammad Nabi is also one of the spinners on the team. Aside from him, the skipper has another spinner at his disposal.

Besides having an explosive batting lineup, Afghanistan also has an explosive bowling lineup. The use of long handles by some batters can be done whenever they wish. Hazratullah Zazai is one of those individuals. As one of the most hard-hitting players in the world, Muhammad Nabi is known all over the world. As with Rahmatullah Gurbaz, Rahmatullah Gurbaz is a technically solid batsman who can also open the batting as well.

Afghanistan will most likely be able to cope with all other emergent outcomes of this event if all goes according to plan. Due to the lack of experience among their players, they were not able to act under pressure in a timely manner. However, Afghan is still one of the favorites to win the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 irrespective of what happens in the tournament.
