Despite being a war-torn nation surrounded by a plethora of problems, Afghanistan continues to produce incredible cricket talent. Apart from having players like Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman in the senior team, the junior unit of Afghanistan are impressing people with their quality.
Recent man to endorse this notion is none other than Bangladesh’s top-order batsman Imrul Kayes who recently led Bangladesh A side in a five-game one-day series against Afghanistan A. While the series ended in a draw, but seeing Afghanistan’s players thrilled him very much.
Reflecting on the battles against Afghan players, the 32-year-old said that he sometimes felt that they were Indian players or players from some other country as they contain the immense skill and genetic power.
Kayes had no shame in admitting that Bangladesh was no match for the power of Afghan side as he stated the incidence where the tourists recorded an impressive display of batting in one of the games by scoring 100 runs consuming only 9 overs.
