The Asia Cup in 2022 will be a perfect opportunity for Afghanistan to feel its presence. The squad has been struggling on the world stage, which is an ideal time. They needn’t fear any nation as long as they play well during qualifying matches leading up until then.
The team’s lack of experience was a significant drawback in past tournaments. However, many players now having played multiple T20 leagues across the globe have more experience than needed in this tournament. The Afghans are partaking in clashes against strong opponents such as Sri Lanka within Group A, where victory will guarantee them entry into the super fours competition.

The Afghanistan side has been named for the upcoming Asia Cup 2022 edition, and they’ll be playing in UAE after it was moved out of Sri Lanka because of its economic crisis.

The Afghanistan team is never considered dangerous. But there are a couple of players who can change the complexion on matchday at any point, and their bowling strength has always been something that teams need to be wary about if they face them in a t20 event! If Rashid Khan gets going – he’ll make it very difficult for anyone looking forward to victory with his spinning deliveries.
The Chief Selector Noor Malikzai announced the squad selection and expressed hope that these players would live up to expectations at this continental tournament.
“The Asia Cup is an important event for us and, as such, we have picked our best available players for the event. Samiullah Shinwari has been added to the side for the Asia Cup. He is in very good form and can give further impetus to the batting department, which already boasts Ibrahim Zadran, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi.”
