Mirwaiz Ashraf has been an experienced campaigner and an ever-loyal servant of Afghan cricket. He is a veteran who has been around since the days Afghanistan used to languish in the League Division Five and has seen its meteoric rise to being granted the ODI status, qualifying for the World Cup in 2015, and ultimately being awarded with a test status. He has been a prominent member of the team in every stage and a major contributor in the war-torn nation’s recent unprecedented success in world cricket.
Mirwaiz is a bowling allrounder. Although he is well built, tall and muscular, he relies more upon his guile than brute force. Ashraf mostly bowls medium pace, leaning slightly towards the slower spectrum. However, don’t let his pace fool you. He can be very difficult to score against, particularly in limited over cricket. He, more often than not, ties down the batsmen with seam movement and accuracy. Batting in the lower order, he can be equally useful as a batsman.
