Gulbadin Naib has been appointed as the captain of Afghanistan Cricket Team for the prestigious 2019 World Cup replacing Asghar Stanakzai.

He made his One day international for Afghanistan against Canada in 2011. He is a decent all-rounder who can do a job with both bat and ball.

With the bat, he has scored 807 runs from 52 matches (44 innings) with the best score of 82*. He is a decent bowler with 40 wickets from 52 matches (47 innings) with an economy of 5.11 runs per over. Afghan team members were unhappy with the removal of Asghar.

Naib needs to lead from the front and help Afghanistan perform well in the upcoming 2019 World Cup. The challenge lies for him to play fearless cricket against top nations and give their best shot.
