Sharafuddin Ashraf is a left-arm spinner with a knack for taking vital top-order wickets. He was part of the Afghanistan under-19 side that beat Australia and Sri Lanka at the 2014 Youth World Cup, and was rewarded with a place in the squad to tour Zimbabwe later that year.
He responded in eye-catching fashion, his 6 for 29 dismantling Zimbabwe A in a limited-overs match. A full ODI debut against Zimbabwe followed, Sharafuddin performing admirably as Afghanistan drew their series 2-2. He'd also picked up a maiden first class five-for before the tour was up, and though he continued to travel with the squad he couldn't quite squeeze into the final XV for the 2015 World Cup.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
