4. Calum MacLeod – Paktia Panthers
The Scottish batsman easily qualifies as one of the best batsman among all the associate cricketing nations. His mind-boggling 175 against Afghanistan during the World Cup qualifiers helped him to rope in a contract with Paktia Panthers.
However he failed to live up to the expectations as he could score just 92 runs from five matches for Mohammad Shahzad’s team. He would love to turn things around and come back stronger in the next year.
5. Javed Ahmadi – Kabul Zwanan
The 26-year-old was part of the meteoric rise of Afghanistan over the past 6-7 years and was also part of the historic inaugural Test match for Afghanistan against India this year.
However he did not have a good APL season as he could manage only 153 runs from 8 matches, which did not even include a half-century.
His captain Rashid Khan would have expected more from him and he would certainly hope that the national selectors does not judge him based on only his performances in this year’s APL.
