AFG vs ZIM 2022: ACB announces squads for white ball series against Zimbabwe

AFG vs ZIM 2022: ACB have announced squads for their white-ball series against Zimbabwe starting from 4th June. Left-arm spinner Zia-ur-Rahman Akbar has received a call-up to the ODI squad while all-rounder Gulabdin Naib has been left out from the ODI squad.

For the T20I series, Qais Ahmad and Mujeeb ur Rahman, who have T20 Blast commitments, have been left out. Qais who is expected to feature for Kent in the T20 Vitality Blast 2022, missed out on selection in both the squads while Mujeeb will join Middlesex after his participation in the ODI series. Ihsanullah Janat and Noor Ahmad have been named as their replacements in the T20I squad while Noor has been named as reserves for the ODI squad as well.

Akbar was the leading wicket-taker at the recent Green Afghanistan One-Day Cup, the domestic 50-over tournament, where he picked up 14 wickets at an average of 12 for Hindukush Strikers. Former Afghanistan Captain Naib, who last played in Afghanistan’s third ODI against Bangladesh earlier in February, has averaged just 13.75 with the bat and picked up only two wickets in the last ten ODIs he’s played. He was also dropped from Bangladesh’s T20I series earlier this year.

Afghanistan are all set to fly to Zimbabwe later this week. The white ball series will start with the ODI series on June 5 while the T20I leg will follow thereafter from June 11. All six games will be played at the Harare Sports Club. The ODI series will be a part of the World Cup Super League. Afghanistan are currently at No. 5 with seven wins in nine games, while Zimbabwe are in 12th position with three wins in 12 games.

Afghanistan last played a white ball series against Bangladesh earlier this year in February-march, losing the ODIs 2-1 in ODIs and drawing the T20I series 1-1.
