With only a few months to go for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Afghanistan Cricket Team and all other participating teams have started identifying their respective potential squads for the tournament and are working to fill in any gaps they might have.

While some teams are working to identify their opening combination, other sides are honing in on their key bowlers. As all sides have limited game time to finalize their squads. Let us now examine how each team stands and what areas they need to sharpen for the next year’s World Cup.

Afghanistan has developed into a confident team this year, winning the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier after coming close to early elimination, and pushing several teams at the Asia Cup a few months ago, notably tying against India during the Super Four stage.

Asghar Afghan, Rahmat Shah, Mohammad Shahzad, and Hashmatullah Shahidi make up the batting core. Shahzad provides aggression at the start of the innings, while Asghar and Hashmatullah provide stability towards the later end of the innings.

Much is expected of Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, and Mujeeb ur Rahman, with their experience in playing in various T20 leagues and in different conditions.

Gulbadan Naib and Aftab Alam are their primary pace bowlers, complementing the spin trio of Nabi, Rashid, and Mujeeb.
