Best XI of the Afghanistan Premier League 2018 Tournament

8. Karim Janat – Kandahar Knights

The 20-year-old is the younger brother of the Afghanistan skipper Asghar Afghan and was one of the biggest positives of the tournament. Although his team did not perform well, he did justice to his all-rounder tag.

He has already played 15 international games for Afghanistan and the former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum also spoke highly of him.

He scored 140 runs in 8 games with the bat at an average of 28 and strike rate of over 120. With the ball he took 12 wickets and is already looking a great prospect in the long run.

9. Isuru Udana – Paktia Panthers

The 30-year-old left-arm pacer was another revelation from the tournament. Although debuting for his nation back in 2009, he just played 19 matches overall which included 17 T20Is.

However he did not lay waste to his opportunity in the APL as he became the highest wicket-taker of the season, bagging 17 wickets in just 8 games. With his average of 14 and economy under 8, he has given a huge statement ahead of the IPL auctions.
