As the international cricket council has announced the schedules for the Afghanistan and West Indies series that will be commencing from November 5 of 2019, there has been squad announcements for both the teams and there are some major names missing.
The Afghanistan cricket team has done well on the international stage although their world ended a mess for them they were still quite optimistic throughout and kept the game spirit alive as they played each match like they were playing it last. The nation ended the world cup with a nine match non-winning streak although they came pretty close to winning a couple of times but their performance was overall good for such a young team it was good. The squad for clash with west indies has excluded major names such as Mohammad Shahzad and Aftab Alam,Dawlat Zadran and Hamid Hassan, and Hashmatullah Shahidi, Noor Ali Zadran and Samiullah Shinwari. This is Afghanistan’s first outing for ODI cricket since the world cup so this is a pretty big deal for the nation’s team. They have been in the international cricket playing T20s with the tournament in Bangladesh which also had an appearance form Zimbabwe.
Now the nation is ready to kick of the series with West Indies which includes 3 T20s and 3 ODIs which will take place after the T20. These matches will be played in India at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium located in Dehradun. The cricket fans are excited to see what Afghanistan has in store after the world cup losses.
