Playing Role


Dawlat Zadran's expressive, homespun bowling action, reminiscent of Waqar Younis, allowed him to generate disarming pace with a quick arm over a braced front leg.

Born in Khost, Zadran made his List A debut in Islamabad in 2011, when Afghanistan became the first international team to visit Pakistan since the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team, and his speed and wicket-taking ability soon saw him installed as a regular fixture in their playing XI.

Zadran was clocked at 145.3kph during the 2014 Asia Cup, and provided the sort of pace rarely seen in Associate sides. He was Afghanistan's spearhead at their successful T20 World Cup qualifying campaign in 2011-12, and represented the team at both the 2012 and 2014 tournaments as well as the 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cups. He was the leading wicket-taker (15 across ODIs and T20Is) in Afghanistan's limited-overs series against Zimbabwe in the UAE in 2015-16, and took another 11 in an ODI series win over Ireland in Greater Noida in early 2017.

He also provided handy sting in the team's tail with his batting, and cracked four sixes in seven deliveries to help Afghanistan to a last-over win against Zimbabwe in 2014 - a result that allowed Afghanistan to claw their way back into, and eventually level, the series.
