Profile

A bustling, energetic seam bowler, Aftab Alam isn't blessed with great height but puts a good deal of effort into his front-on action. Aftab is one of the success stories of cricket development in Afghanistan, having made his way through age group teams from under-15 level all the way to the under-19 squad for the 2010 Youth World Cup in New Zealand. He was his team's leading wicket-taker at the tournament, with 12 scalps, and made his ODI debut against Canada shortly after the tournament.
