Zakhil To Lead Team in Cricket World Cup Under 19

Farhan Zakhil, 16, the opening batsman, will lead Afghanistan's Under 19 National Cricket Team in the Under 19 World Cup in January and February next year in South Africa.

Zakhil is already a first-class cricketer, having scored 929 runs in 13 matches in the format with three centuries and five half-centuries.

Another standout is Ibrahim Zadran, 17, a young Afghan opener.

He has already made his full international debut, having played two Tests, an ODI and three T20Is for Afghanistan so far.

His 87 in the second innings of the Test against Bangladesh in September helped Afghanistan to a famous win.

Zadran played in the previous edition of the U19 World Cup as well, where he scored 186 runs in five matches.

Afghanistan reached the semi-finals of that tournament before falling to eventual runners-up Australia.
