Afghanistan’s starting lineup at bat

In the ODI format, Afghanistan’s primary batting lineup includes Red Bowl power hitters. For their respective teams at the ODI World Cup in 2023, Hazratullah Zazai, Rehmanullah Garbaz, Najeebullah Zardan, and Azmatullah Umarzai are set aside as openers.

Since the team currently relies on medium pacers, Afghanistan has never had any quality pace attacks. They will undoubtedly be bothered by the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023’s lack of pace attackers. However, their main bowlers will be Naveen-ul-Haq, Mohammad Saleem, and Fazal-ul-Haq Farooqui.

Afghanistan Bowling Team’s lineup

One cannot underestimate the power and prowess of the Afghan spin bowlers when it comes to high-caliber spin attacks. Rashid Khan and Majeedur Rahman are currently their team’s top two full-time spinners.

Afghanistan can certainly compete with all the other emerging sides in this situation. However, due to a lack of experience, their players were unable to participate in high-stress situations. Despite this, Afghanistan continues to be a strong contender for the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup.
