Afghanistan are placed in Group C of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Afghanistan have been one of the most improved teams in the last decade. They have been doing well against the higher-ranked teams, and their performance at ICC events has improved significantly. They can be extremely tricky to handle in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 because the pitches in the West Indies are expected to be dry and slow, which will suit their spinners.

Rashid Khan will be leading Afghanistan in this mega event in the West Indies and USA. It is Rashid’s first ICC event as captain.

The Afghans are in Group C. They will play their first match on June 3 against Uganda in Guyana. They will look to finish the group round in the top two to make it to the Super 8 stage.

There are several match-winners in their squad. In this article, we will talk about five Afghan players whom you should pick for your Dream11 team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Here are the five Afghan stars you must have in your Dream11 teams during the ICC T20 World Cup 2024:

5. Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman has several variations in his armour. The 23-year-old is one of the finest spinners in T20 cricket. He has played in leagues all across the world. He has a fantastic record in T20 World Cups – 11 wickets in just six matches. On his day, he can give you a couple of wickets and he will be effective on the slow pitches in West Indies.

4. Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is arguably the best Afghanistan batter in the shortest format. His ability to strike the ball is second to none among his teammates. His team’s success will significantly depend on how he performs in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Gurbaz is a free-flowing batter who likes to start aggressively and keep hammering even when the field restrictions are lifted. He is also the wicket-keeper, so he will give you extra fantasy points with the gloves. Hence, you can even pick him as vice-captain of your fantasy cricket team.

3. Azmatullah Omarzai

Azmatullah Omarzai is a genuine all-rounder. He bowls with the new ball and bats in the middle-order. Omarzai recently had a decent Indian Premier League 2024 for Gujarat Titans with the ball. He had a brilliant ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 in India. The all-rounder will give you fantasy points in both departments, which is why he is an important player to have in your Dream11 team.

2. Mohammad Nabi

Mohammad Nabi is the senior-most Afghanistan player in the current squad. The veteran all-rounder is the best performer of his country in T20 World Cups. He has 19 wickets to his name at an economy rate of 7.48 and has also scored 291 runs with the bat. Nabi will be effective on slow surfaces; hence, if you need a solid vice-captain, you can go with him.

1. Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan is the highest-ranked Afghan bowler in the T20I rankings and is one of the best in the shortest format. His four overs in this format of the game will be really important. He is someone who picks wickets and also controls the run-flow. Adding to that, he has also improved his power-hitting and is a brilliant fielder. So you can also have Rashid as captain for your Dream11 teams in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.
