Fazalhaq Farooqi has taken nine wickets in two matches so far in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

After winning their first two games of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, Afghanistan are one win away from sealing their place in the Super 8 round. If they manage to do so, which is looking very likely now, one of New Zealand or West Indies will not be able to proceed to the next round.

One of the biggest contributors to Afghanistan’s success in their first two games has been pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi, who has been outstanding with the new ball, giving his side an early edge in the two contests.

Farooqi is currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with nine wickets in only two outings. He has recorded sensational figures of 5/9 against Uganda and 4/17 against New Zealand. Afghanistan defeated Uganda by 125 runs and New Zealand by 84 runs.

Fazalhaq Farooqi tears into the stumps of Finn Allen

In the AFG vs NZ clash in Guyana, Farooqi gave a superb start to Afghanistan by dismissing New Zealand opener Finn Allen with a sensational inswinger that burst through Allen’s bat-pad gap and sent the leg stump for a ride.

It was simply a sensational delivery from the left-arm pacer as it swung in a little and then further moved into the right-handed batter after pitching. Allen made matters worse for himself by attempting an aggressive leg-side drive on the first ball without any feet movement.

In his second over, Farooqi dismissed the other Kiwi opener, Devon Conway, before getting rid of Daryl Mitchell in his third over. He returned later to pick the last wicket of the innings, that of Matt Henry.

His three wickets in the powerplay gave Afghanistan a solid start in the defence of their total of 159. New Zealand couldn’t get going at all and were bowled out for only 75 runs.
