Kabul, Apr 22 (IBNS): The Afghanistan Cricket Board on Monday announced their 15-member squad for the World Cup this year.

The final squad was shortlisted from the 23-member contingent that took part in the training camp held in Potchefstroom, South Africa. As per the selection committee, the squad was selected considering the fitness and performance over the last six months.

Gulbadin Naib has been named the skipper of the squad.

Chief Selector, Dawlat Khan Ahmadzai was quoted as saying by the ACB website, “It is has been a six-month preparation process for the ICC Cricket World Cup. The mission is to play inspirational cricket in the tournament; I know there are strong teams but we will do our level best to achieve our goals.”

Remarking on veteran Pacer Hamid Hassan’s inclusion in the squad, Ahmadzai added, “Luckily for us, the come-back of senior Fast bowler Hamid Hassan is a good news. However, we will take into account his form and fitness during upcoming practice matches.“
