A bellicose wicketkeeper-batsman, Shafiqullah played regularly for Afghanistan as a young man and was part of the team that motored through international cricket's lower divisions to qualify for the World T20 and gain ODI status. He has participated in two World T20 campaigns, and top-scored with a 43-ball 56 in Afghanistan's series-levelling win over Zimbabwe in July 2014.
