Ten Afghanistan Cricketers With the Most Centuries in One-Day Internationals: Comprehensive List

In one-day international cricket, scoring a century is a difficult feat to achieve. Despite the fact that the players make it seem simple, the architecture of the cricket pitch throws substantial limits on the batter. The total supremacy of Afghanistan’s cricket players over the last twenty years is unquestionable and cannot be contested in any way.

There are a few memorable times in the history of cricket when Afghan players astonished the world with stunning efforts in one-day internationals that will never be forgotten. These performances took place in matches that were played in Afghanistan as per world cricket news:

Mohammad Shahzad

Afghanistan’s best-known wicketkeeper, Mohammad Shahzad, is also one of the country’s most iconic hitters, having set several records throughout his career. With his 110 runs, Shahzad became the first Afghan player to hit a century in an ODI. His efforts helped Afghanistan to its first-ever victory. With 104 outs in one frame, he’s the all-time leader in strikeouts. He hit six hundred in 84 games for the club. As far as the stats go, he also has the honor of being the tournament’s top-run scorer.

Rahmat Shah

Afghan batter and young gun Rahmat Shah can win in any kind of betting circumstance. He swings the bat right-handed and has a lot of leg spin. Now that Afghanistan has Test status, Shah is one of the hitters counted on to stabilize an “explosive but on the point of crumbling” middle order. A century against Scotland was the icing on the cake for his call-up, and he has since been an indispensable member of Afghanistan’s middle order. At Greater Noida, in his team’s first-ever ODI, he scored 108 runs, a personal high and the decisive run in the series victory over Ireland. He has five centuries in 82 matches.

 Rahmanullah Gurbaz

The first Afghan to get a century on his ODI debut was Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who was given the nod to start the innings in Thursday’s match against Ireland. He hit 127 runs off 127 balls, including 8 fours and 9 sixes, and now owns the records for both the highest score in a series and the highest score on debut. Now the youngest player to ever reach 100, he has now performed 9 matches and broken three centuries.

 Nawroz Mangal

In 2007, right-handed batsman and off-spin bowler Nawroz Mangal was named Afghanistan’s first captain, with the responsibility of leading the team to new heights. Afghanistan advanced to the 2010 World T20 competition under his leadership after establishing its ODI reputation in the 2009 World Cup qualifiers. In October of 2010, against Kenya, Mangal scored his first and only century, scoring 168 runs in an innings that proved pivotal in a 167-run win against Afghanistan. In March of 2013, while playing against Scotland, Mangal scored his first ODI century. He was voted the game’s Man of the Match after scoring 112 runs alone to help his team win by seven wickets. The man has played 49 games and scored several hundred.

 Karim Sadiq Khan

Karim Sadiq bats right-handed and bowls right-arm off-break; he also sometimes keeps wickets for the national team. He was responsible for wiping out many millennia’s worth of history throughout his tenure. While playing against Scotland, he scored his maiden ODI century, 114 runs, as Afghanistan won by nine wickets.

Mohammad Nabi

An adept pusher and one of Afghanistan’s top handymen, Mohammad Nabi has been an important player for his nation. With his participation in Afghanistan’s first-ever ODI, he has been a part of practically all of the team’s accomplishments. While in India against MCC in 2006, Nabi was a member of the Afghanistan team. He had an outstanding game, racking up 116 points. Nabi was there for both of Pakistan’s World Cup victories in 2015 (against Scotland) and 2016 (against the Windies in the T20 World Cup) when they were crowned winners. Gayle may have done the Gangnam Style following Afghanistan’s victory, but Nabi has now moved in. He’s capable of assuming whatsoever persona you need. An indispensable jack-of-all-trades endowed with flawless skills.

 Asghar Afghan

Afghanistan’s Asghar Afghan bats in the middle of the order. In his whole career, he had just one century that he shattered. In 2010, he led his team in runs with 111 and helped them beat Ireland by an innings and a half.

Najibullah Zadran

Even though Najibullah Zadran is just five feet tall, his aggressive left-footed putting is a formidable force. Age-group cricket prepared him for the big stage, and he followed in the footsteps of many of his generation’s predecessors on the national side. Najibullah Zadran made his one-day international debut on July 5, 2015, hence he has already appeared in 54 matches before the 2019 World Cup. In 50 innings at bat, he scored 1210 runs on 1372 balls (batting average of 28.81, slugging percentage of 88.19). He was perfect on the field for 8 of these innings. His highest possible innings total for a man or a woman is now 104*. A single century is all he needs to make his call.

 Noor Ali Zadran

Afghan cricketer Noor Ali Zadran is a right-handed batter and a right-arm medium bowler. His cricketing idol and motivation are Ricky Ponting. When Ali hit a century on his debut in 2009, it was against Zimbabwe XI. At the age of 19, he opened with a 114-run performance.

Usman Ghani

Usman Ghani is one of the most talented young cricketers to come out of Afghanistan in recent years. He has already represented his country in a one-day international competition. At age 17, Ghani developed sufficiently as a batsman to hit a century in his fourth One-Day International, which he played in against Zimbabwe. After scoring a century in a match against Zimbabwe in July 2014, he became one of Afghanistan’s most prominent batsmen of the century club.


When batting on the road, they have committed several mistakes. It’s a gift scenario, but the club still boasts a couple of all-star batters who can’t be ignored.
