Articles about Aftab Alam

Aftab Alam is an example of the successful development of cricket in Afghanistan. A right-arm medium pacer by trade, Alam compensated for his lack of height with the effort he put into his front-on action. He played in different age groups starting from U-15 till U-19. In the 2010 Youth World Cup held in New Zealand, he was Afghanistan's leading wicket-taker with 12 wickets. Soon after that, he made his ODI debut against Canada in 2010. However, he continued playing for the U-19 team as well. In 2012, he appeared in his second Youth World Cup. Alam was part of the Afghanistan squad that played in the 2014 ICC World Twenty20. He made his first-class debut in the 2017-18 Ahmad Shah Abdali 4-day Tournament for Mis Ainak Region. In the 2018 Ghazi Amanullah Khan Regional One-Day Tournament, he had an impressive ten wickets from just four matches. Alam was also part of the inaugural edition of the Afghanistan Premier League. Although he was included in the Afghanistan squad for the 2019 ICC World Cup, he was later ruled out and then banned for a year by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) for violation of the Code of Conduct.
