Bio

Aged just 17, Usman Ghani burst into the Afghanistan one-day international team in May 2014 when he scored 70 from 68 balls on debut.

His innings included six fours and four sixes, and he capped the performance by taking 1-21 with the ball.

Ghani’s second ODI produced an almost as impressive 55 from 77 balls, and he finished the 2014 Asian Cricket Council Premier League as the tournament’s leading run scorer with 228 runs at 45.60.

Two months later Ghani was at it again when he plundered 118 against Zimbabwe, followed by a run-a-ball 43 in the following match.

Ghani then scored a century and an unbeaten 61* during the ICC Cricket World Cup warm-up tour of Australia and New Zealand and the 18-year-old will factor heavily in Afghanistan’s plans for the World Cup.
