The rise of Afghanistan cricket in such a limited time frame has been astonishing to say the least. The highly successful Afghanistan Premier League (APL) serves as the pinnacle of their progress in recent times.
While already blessed with an abundance of spinners, new kid on the block Qais Ahmad has truly impressed South African legend AB de Villiers it seems. ‘Mr. 360’, the official ambassador for the UAE T20x, recently unveiled his list for the 5 emerging picks for the upcoming tournament.
He placed 18-year-old Qais amongst the likes of Shimron Hetmyer and Paul Stirling, indicating how highly he thinks of the prodigious leg-spin sensation. Extremely pleased at this honor, Qais expressed his joy at such a huge moment.
