The uncapped team of Zahir Khan and Sayed Shirzad have been added to Afghanistan’s Test squad for their irregular match against Ireland, set to be played in Dehradun from March 15.
Zahir, a moderate left-armer, was not chosen in the first squad as the selectors were looking out for their wellness report. Be that as it may, he has now gotten a perfect chit.
“Both Zahir Khan and Sayed Shirzad have extremely great bowling records in five star cricket and have played in the ICC Intercontinental Cup for Afghanistan,” Dawlat Ahmadzai, Afghanistan’s main selector, said. “We were anticipating Zahir’s wellness report while declaring the underlying 14-part Test squad and since he is completely fit, we have chosen to add him to the squad.”
While both the players made their ODI makes a big appearance in the as of late finished up arrangement against Ireland, left-arm pacer Shirzad had made his global introduction against Oman in November 2015
“Sayed Shirzad is included as an extra pacer in the squad to have another bowling alternative if necessary,” Ahmadzai included.
