Afsar Zazai is the primary wicketkeeper batsman for the Afghanistan National team. He is also one of the eleven players to have played an international test match, a feat he achieved against India in 2018. Another fun fact: He is the first cap for Afghanistan in test cricket.
Afsar Zazai’s cricketing talents were identified quite early and he was selected to be a part of the 2010 youth World Cup in New Zealand at the tender age of just 16 years. Prior to that, he had proved his mettle by effecting nine dismissals in six games for the Afghanistan U-19 team during the 2010 U-19 World Cup qualifiers. He even went on to represent the war-torn nation in another youth world cup, the 2012 edition. He then had to wait for two more years to make his senior debut. He was handed his first cap in 2014 against the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He finished the match with a neat 60, a catch, and a stumping.
