Ainsdale is delighted to confirm the signing of Afghan sensation, Nangeyalia Kharote, for their 2024 Liverpool and District Cricket Competition season.

Kharote is an exceptional prospect destined for the big stage.

Having dominated the ICC Under-19 World Cup (Jan 2022) in the Caribbean (9 wickets at 16.44), the left-arm spinner has since excelled in various domestic tournaments in Afghanistan (Shpageeza T20, Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan Provincial Grade One Day, and Mirwais Nika Regional 3-Day), and the Pakistan Junior League (Oct 2022).

Kharote is a genuine all-rounder – a left-arm orthodox spinner and hard-hitting batter capable of batting throughout the order. In fact, he opened the batting for Afghanistan in the Caribbean and filled the number 4 slot during his victorious PJL campaign for the Bahawalpur Royals.

However, it’s with the ball that Kharote is making a name for himself. He has starred in his 31 professional white ball outings to date with List A, and T20 averages of 16.31, and 18.61.

The Afghan all-rounder is set for stardom, mark our words. But, for now, the youngster is looking forward to his maiden UK stint in 2024 having signed with Ainsdale for their Liverpool League campaign.
