Unlike the stereotypical Afghan success story involving war-stricken and plagued backgrounds, Mujeeb Zadran's is the trend-breaker. Having grown up in a mansion in Khost, Mujeeb developed a keen interest in cricket while watching the 2012 World T20.
IPL - Through the years

He may have been a 17-year-old with a four-crore INR deal, from a war-torn nation which had thus far produced only two IPL players, but Mujeeb was clearly unfazed by the enormity of what he'd achieved. KXIP's think-tank too seemed to have placed a lot of trust in the youngster in 2018, who despite the presence of several international stars, made it to the first eleven, thus becoming the youngest ever to play in the IPL, and played a crucial role in his side's victories in the first half of the season. This included bamboozling many a batsman, including Virat Kohli, and he was more than happy to bowl the tough overs in the match, towards the death and in the powerplay.

What to expect in the 2019 WC?

Ajantha Mendis might not be a household name anymore but the species made famous by him still find habitats to survive. Mujeeb belongs to the 'mystery' spinner species. His strength is his nagging accuracy and of course the judicious use of carrom ball. Wrist spinners are in fashion these days in limited overs but this man despite being a finger spinner has it in him to have a dream run at the WC.

Like most of the games he has played on, Mujeeb in all likelihood will open the bowling attack. If he can put the batters on a tight leash, Afghanistan for sure can strike the right chords through out the tournament. Mysteries can be solved but this one is here to stay for a long time. And expect Afghanistan to piggy back on this lad as the tournament progresses.
