Afghan’s Wafadar ruled out of Asia Cup

Khaama Press

Wafadar, the Afghanistan fast bowler, has been ruled out of Asia Cup 2018 after he sustained a back injury during training, reports Khaama Press from Kabul.

According to the Afghanistan Cricket Board, Wafadar had a “nerve depression in his back” and was “advised rest for six weeks” by doctors. His return will be carefully managed thereafter.

Wafadar will be replaced by Yamin Ahmadzai, who was already with the squad as a reserve player.

Wafadar, 18, was one of three uncapped players in Afghanistan’s 17-man squad for the tournament. He first came to prominence during Afghanistan’s maiden Test against India in Bengaluru in June.

He picked up two wickets – those of Murali Vijay and Hardik Pandya – and was particularly impressive in a couple of spells.

Meanwhile, Dawlat Zadran, who sustained a knee injury in June ahead of the Twenty20 International series against Bangladesh, will need another six weeks of rehabilitation before he can take the field again.

Afghanistan begin their Asia Cup campaign with a match against Sri Lanka on 17 September. Bangladesh are the other team in their group, with India, Pakistan and one of Hong Kong and UAE making up the second group.

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) on Sunday announced the national team squad for the Asia Cup 2018.
