Wafadar, Shirzad earn maiden call-up for Ireland ODIs

Kabul: Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) have announced a 14-member T20I squad and 16-member ODI squad for Afghanistan's 11-day tour to Ireland.

Wafadar Momand and Sayed Shirzad have earned maiden call-ups to the ODI squad with plenty of fresh faces in both the units.

Wafadar, 18, made his international debut in Afghanistan's maiden Test against India, picking up the crucial scalps of Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya. He impressed with his ability to move the ball at good pace, and the selectors obviously saw enough.

Shiraz, who has played three T20Is for Afghanistan, was also included in the ODI squad, as was top-order batsman Hashmatullah Shahid. Aftab Alam, who last played a 50-over game in 2015, was also recalled to the 16-man squad.
