Ikram Alikhil is an incredibly talented young cricketer from Afghanistan. Part of an exciting generation of young Afghan players, the left-handed wicket-keeper batsman rose to global fame during the 2019 Cricket World Cup. Scoring 86 against the West Indies, Ikram broke the
record of highest score by an 18-year-old at a World Cup event, previously held by Sachin
Tendulkar. His 92-ball knock etching his name into the record books.

His ability to perform on the big stage was no surprise to those in the know, with signs of his class on show well before his World Cup antics. Alikhil scored 107* during the 2017 ACC Under-19 Asia Cup final against Pakistan, helping Afghanistan win their maiden ACC Under-19 Cup title.

Proving himself as a player who can play all three formats, there is no doubt that AliKhil is one to watch for the future and his performances for Speen-Ghar in the Afghan Domestic competitions have been outstanding having clocked up 759 runs @ 39.94 at just 20.

Seeking to play in the UK as a professional for the first time in 2022, Ikram will be a great pick up for any UK club seeking a high-end Wicketkeeper/Batsman this summer.
