Yamin Ahmadzai: Career Highlights
Yamin Ahmadzai is a right-arm fast bowler included in the Afghanistan Under-19 squad for the 2010 World Cup in New Zealand. His cricketing idol is Mohammad Asif. Yamin played cricket at the U19 level for Afghanistan in the 2010 U19 World Cup. He could play just three matches in the tournament but had a major contribution in the event that followed the next year. He helped the national Youth side qualify for the 2012 U19 World Cup as they finished fourth in the 2011 U19 World Cup Qualifiers’ points table.
From 2011, he kept playing in the Faysal Bank Twenty20 Cup that eventually led to his selection in the senior national T20 side. A huge fan of former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Asif, Afghanistan’s Yamin Ahmadzai made his white-ball debuts quite early in the 2015 season, but it’s in the most extended format earned accolades as far as Afghanistan’s domestic cricket is concerned. A smooth and economic action and unerring accuracy around the off-stump channel are Yamin’s signature traits.
He is also blessed with the ability to move the ball and this quality coupled with his discipline as a bowler makes him a competent resource in red-ball cricket. In his brief Test career so far, he’s already had three instances of three-wicket hauls, including two in his debut game (which was Afghanistan’s inaugural Test as well) against a formidable Indian batting line-up. It shall be interesting to see if Yamin features in Afghanistan’s limited-overs plans but he is surely one of their automatic picks as far as Test cricket is concerned. With more exposure, he could be a threatening all-round pacer.
