Alam has appeared in a little more than 20 ODIs since his 2010 debut but still offers variation - a lower, zippy action that generates surprising pace and can trick a batsman
Born: November 30, 1992
Role: Right-hand bat, right-arm medium-fast
One of the Afgan cricketers to have progressed through the various age-group levels in the national setup into the senior team, Alam has been modestly used by the senior side over recent years.
He has appeared in a little more than 20 ODIs since his 2010 debut but still offers variation - a lower, zippy action that generates surprising pace and can trick a batsman.
Alam’s ODI debut - against Canada in February 2010 - came off the back of an exceptional Under 19 World Cup, in which he returned 12 wickets (the most by an Afghani).
He was just 17 at the time.
Now 26, Alam is unlikely to be a lynchpin in this Afghanistan side at the 2019 World Cup but he remains a reliable backup for captain Gulbadin Naib.
