Coming from BKSP, when Afif joined the Kings training – a very few people were aware of his capabilities. His only identity was his underage performances, a vice captain for the U-19 team for the Asia Cup.

Who knew the surprise package this boy wonder was keeping secret? Called in for his explosive batting techniques at the top of the batting order, Afif bamboozled the spectators when he picked up a 5 wicket haul in his debuut T20 match against Chittagong Vikings in the BPL 2016. Among his claims were many decorated batsmen, particularly one Chris Henry Gayle.

By doing so, Afif burst on to the scene with his newly acclaimed record of being the youngest ever to claim a fifer at a T20 match also the highest wicket taker at a debut T20 match. This boy holds great potential and maybe someday will be the torchbearer of a new generation cricketers for Bangladesh.
