2. Mohammad Shahzad (wk) – Paktia Panthers
Shahzad continued his Asia Cup form into the tournament as he played some best cricket and was instrumental in giving his team the much needed solid start throughout the entire tournament, except for the semi-final.
He did everything for his team, despite not being 100 percent fit, as he led his side fantastically. He was also the leading run scorer with 344 runs from 9 games at an average of 43. The wicketkeeper-batsman was also given the award of the best batsman of the tournament.
3. Darwish Rasooli – Balkh Legends
Rasooli was a tough choice over Hazratullah Zazai, the only centurion of the tournament who also hit six sixes in an over. Zazai was also the second highest run-scorer of the tournament with 322 runs.
However most of Zazai’s runs came in just two or three innings. Both Zazai and Rasooli played some good cricket but Rasooli was named as the ‘Emerging Player of the tournament’.
Rasooli showed some great maturity despite being just 18 years old as he took the responsibility of playing long and deep innings. He scored a total of 213 runs from 7 innings.
