Gulbadin Naib Returns to Afghanistan T20 WC Squad 2022

Afghanistan opener Hazratullah Zazai ruled out of the tournament after straining hamstring injury. All-rounder and former captain of Afghan team Gulbadin Naib returns to the Afghanistan T20 WC 2022 squad instead replacing Zazai.

The Afghan cricket team included him in the remaining matches. Afghanistan has not seen victory in T20 World Cup yet. Afghanistan’s hopes of a semi are almost over after losses to England and Ireland and New Zealand abandoned due to rain.

Earlier, the Afghanistan Cricket Board applied to the Event Technical Committee for player transfer. Then the event technical committee accepted the application.

Gulbadin Naib has played 52 matches in T20 cricket for the Afghanistan team. Although he was not in the main team in the World Cup, he was with the team in Australia as a stand-by player.
