Najeeb Tarakai is a right-handed batsman from Afghanistan. This aggressive opening batsman, born on 2 February 1991, made his international debut in 2014 in a T20 against Bangladesh. He hasn’t played many international matches and that’s probably because of the presence of destructive openers such as Shahzad and Zazai.
