Background

Ahmadi has a rags-to-riches kind of story. He was born in a refugee camp in Peshawar but moved to Afghanistan to pursue a career in cricket. Ahmadi also played for Afghanistan in their first-ever Test match against India in June 2018.

Javed Ahmadi was captain of Afghanistan’s 2012 Under-19 World Cup team. He was the thirdhighest scorer in the tournament and his 134-run knock against Scotland was the highest individual score in the tournament.

When the World Cup ended, he had to take a 15-hour flight to Sharjah to reach in time for the senior team match against Australia. Ahmadi was also a part of Afghanistan’s 2010 Under-19 World Cup team.

Ahmadi has impressive ODI stats. He has played 42 matches and made 976 runs at an average of 23.8 and a strike rate of 75.54. He has 7 50s to his name, including the highest score of 81 runs.

Talking about his bowling stats, in 17 innings, he has taken 9 wickets at an average of 35.44 and an economy of 4.81. His best bowling figures in ODI are 4 wickets for 37 runs. Ahmadi last played an ODI in November 2019 against the West Indies.

Javed Ahmadi impressed everyone with his talent in the under-19 arena. However, he has failed to maintain the same level of performance at the international stage. He is 28 now and still has many years ahead of him. Hopefully, he will be able to justify his talent at the international level soon.
