Afghanistan are currently in West Indies for a 3-match ODI series. Previously, they lost to the home side in a 3-match T20I series and now they have a bigger challenge in front. However, they have some changes in their squad for the ODIs and will be expected to do better.
They will be playing under Asghar Stanikzai for one more time. Stanikzai himself didn’t look to pleasing to the eye with his batting performances and will have to lead his side from the front. Besides, his captaincy skills will have to come forward more in the bigger format and he must show some intent and lead his side positively.
Though all the batsmen failed badly in the T20Is, Afghanistan still have few from that squad in ODIs as well. They will be again relying on Javed Ahmadi, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib and Noor Ali Zadran in the batting department. Usman Ghani and Samiullah Shenwari will also have a role to play with the bat. A couple of new inclusions are Rehmat Shah, the allrounder, and Nasir Jamal who is the middle order batsman. So, they have quite a few good batsmen and if they play to their full potential then we can really have some interesting games to watch in the ODI series.
On the bowling front, Afghans will be depending again on the veterans in Dawlat Zadran and Shapoor Zadran. Rehmat Shah can bowl a bit as well. But their main focus will be on Rashid Khan because he has been their go to bowler for quite some time now. He was economical in the T20Is but will have to strike in ODIs and make his presence felt. If he gets going then it will be quite tough for West Indies to outsmart the visitors.
