Rashid Khan is left off the Afghanistan squad for the one-off test match against Sri Lanka, which is scheduled to take place at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo on February 2. Due to the back surgery he underwent in November of last year, Afghanistan’s star Rashid Khan is expected to miss one test.

After being absent from the crucial BBL and Afghanistan’s three-match T20I series tour of India, Rashid Khan was last seen competing in the ODI World Cup 2023 in October and November in India.

Noor Ali Zadran, Zia-ur-Rehman, Mohammad Ishaq, and Naveed Zadran are the four uncapped players that Afghanistan has named in their squad. Having played in 23 T20I and 51 One-Day Internationals since making his debut in 2009, Noor, who is related to Ibrahim Zadran, has copious experience. His test debut hasn’t yet occurred, though.

The Afghanistan squad consists of Hashmatullah Shahidi as captain, Ibrahim Zadran, Abdul Malik, Noor Ali Zadran, Rahmat Shah as vice captain, Bahir Shah, Nasir Jamal, Ikram Alikhil (wk), Mohammad Ishaq (wk), Qais Ahmad, Zia-ur-Rehman, Zahir Khan, Yamin Ahmadzai, Nijat Masood, Mohammad Saleem, and Naveed Zadran.
