Best XI of the Afghanistan Premier League 2018 Tournament

6. Mohammad Nabi (c) – Balkh Legends

The captain of Balkh Legends led his team beautifully throughout the tournament and has deservedly won the title. His biggest strength was to keep his calmness even when the situation was tough.

Although he was not totally dominative with both the bat and ball, he did enough in both the aspects to help his team. He played the role of a finisher in the team, scoring 177 runs from 7 innings with a strike rate of over 200.

He also took the responsibility to take the new ball up front and was instrumental too as he picked up 9 wickets from 10 games this season.

7. Rashid Khan – Kabul Zwanan

The No. 1 T20I bowler was more dominant with the bat than the ball. In fact his beginning of the tournament with the ball was pathetic as he hardly got any wickets.

However he made it up with his willow as he scored an unbelievable 173 runs in eight innings with an average of 35 and an excellent strike rate of near about 200. He hit 16 sixes in the tournament with the highest score of 56*.

Later he became destructive with the ball too as he ended up taking 10 wickets in the tournament. Because of his all-round performance, he was awarded with the Player of the tournament award.
