Nijat Masood is an exciting, young seam bowler making waves in Afghanistan cricket. Given his domestic success, it seems only a matter of time before the quick hits the big stage.

Since his List A debut for Mis Ainak Region in the 2017 Ghazi Amanullah Khan Regional One Day Tournament (August), he has excelled, regularly topping the various competition wicket-charts.

The former Afghanistan Under-19 star, made his first-class debut in October 2017, taking 6-55 in the first innings. Roll on July 2018, and he was the leading wicket-taker of the One-Day Tournament (13 wickets), culminating with Kabul selection for the inaugural Afghanistan Premier League.

The following year, he topped the 2019 Afghanistan Provincial Challenge Cup (List A) wicket charts (17 wickets), resulting in Emerging Players selection for the Asia Cup in Bangladesh. Unsurprisingly, the opening bowler excelled and was named in Afghanistan’s Test squad for their one-off match against the West Indies. Whilst he didn’t play, it’s a sure sign he’s very much in contention for the future.

For now, though, the speedster, who boasts List A and T20 bowling averages of 20.29, and 23.72, respectively, is seeking opportunities globally, whether that be Franchise T10/20, or UK club cricket in 2022. A stunning talent with the ball, who is no mug with the bat, boasting a highest score of 71 in first-class cricket, Masood is a player we have incredibly high hopes for in future.
