Another to the addition of exciting spinners from Afghanistan, Qais Ahmad is a feisty leggie from Nangarhar. Despite being in his teens still, he’s already shown his wares across the globe in franchise T20 leagues.
Ahmad already has a contract in PSL, CPL and BBL apart from other leagues. A potent wicket-taker by design, he has a rhythmic action and a fine repertoire of variations, all delivered from a slightly flatter trajectory (like Rashid Khan who has introduced this trend among Afghanistan bowlers).
Apart from his energetic bowling displays, Qais is also well-known for his acrobatic celebrations when he picks up a wicket.
His reverse-somersault is a highly popular move and in years to come, could be one that international cricket shall witness regularly. He can also be a handy batsman down the order with his slogging but it’s primarily as a bowler that he continues to thrive. There are still areas for him to work on but then, he also has age on his side.
