Ikram Alikhil is part of an exciting generation of Afghanistani cricketers, with the left-handed wicket-keeper batsman rising to global fame during the 2019 Cricket World Cup breaking the record of highest score by an 18-year-old at a World Cup event previously held by Sachin Tendulkar. Ali Khil scored 86 off 92 balls against the West Indies during the event; however, there were signs of Alikhil’s quality even before this knock. Alikhil scored 107* during the 2017 ACC Under-19 Asia Cup final against Pakistan, helping Afghanistan win their maiden ACC Under-19 Cup title and has since developed a reputation of being an exciting prospect. Proving himself as a player who can play all three formats, there is no doubt that Ali Khil is one to watch for the future.
