If there is one cricket team that has evolved the most in recent times, it has to be Afghanistan! They were once considered minnows but now they are a team that can trounce any opposition on their given day.

They had to fight more battles than many to emerge as a competitive team. Afghanistan today is as good a T20 team as there could be. They have those mighty hitters, exceptional spin bowlers and a few pacers too! They doubtlessly need a few improvements to make it even bigger.

This T20 World Championship is a great opportunity for Afghanistan to leave a mark in world cricket. They have the resources, all they need is to execute their plans as they are part of a strong group. Let us take you through their squad, probable playing XI, key players for D3.club and schedule.

Players to lock for D3.club

As you know there are lakhs to take home during every match hosted on D3.club– a one-of-its-kind cricket strategy game– having the right player cards always helps.

So, to win when Afghanistan plays, you must own cards of the following players:

Rashid Khan! Isn’t the name enough? They call him ‘the magician’ for more than one reason. Whenever he has the ball in hand, it seems something will happen on every ball. He is the best T20I bowler in the world and there is almost no league in the world that he hasn’t been a part of. So, he has to be on your side whenever Afghanistan takes the field. Get his player card in multiple tiers RIGHT NOW!

Mujeeb Ur Rahman is another Afghanistan player who can turn the tables all alone. He has been in terrific form in recent times. He doesn’t just take wickets but makes batters struggle for even a single run. Thankfully, you can straightaway get his card from RARIO MARKETPLACE from HERE!

The other players to keep a look at in the Afghanistan team include skipper Mohammad Nabi and Fazalhaq Farooqi. Nabi is a top all-rounder who can hit the ball long ways and bowl good off-spin while Farooqi is a tremendous left-arm pacer with multiple skills under his belt.
