Afghanistan cricket has developed a reputation of hosting a wealth of spin talent in the country. With the likes of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi already making a mark on the international arena, the fast-rising Qais Ahmad is also gradually climbing the ladder of excellence.
After a spate of performances in several leagues around the world, Qais has finally earned a national call-up for the T20Is against Ireland. Qais has the experience of playing in the Big Bash League, Caribbean Premier League and the Afghanistan Premier League, becoming somewhat of a globetrotter.
He has thus duly come into the national set-up in the white-ball setup. Qais has so far represented Afghanistan in only one Test and would be keen to becoming a permanent member of the Afghan side across all formats.
