Afghanistan cricketer Sharafuddin Ashraf made his first appearance at the 2021 T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates today.
Mohammad Nabi’s men have impressed almost every cricket fan at the World Cup. They’ve won two of their three games so far but Ashraf hasn’t had a look-in until today against India.
The 26-year-old was brought into the side to replace Mujeeb Ur Rahman against India this afternoon. He hasn’t quite set the stage on fire, but he has got people talking about him on social media.
So, who is Sharafuddin Ashraf and what is his net worth? Let us tell you!
Who is Sharafuddin Ashraf?
Born on the 10th of January in 1995, Ashraf was always into cricket. Not much else is known about his early life, but he has been a popular figure in Afghanistan since making his international debut.
Ashraf is a slow left-arm spinner who is capable of picking up really important wickets. He earned his international call-up after impressive performances for the Afghanistan under-19 side which beat Australia and Sri Lanka at the 2014 Youth World Cup.
Since making his debut later that year, Ashraf has played 26 games for his country across two formats. He has picked up 18 wickets, which is not a bad return at all, especially for someone who is always behind the likes of Rashid Khan and Mujeeb.
Sharafuddin Ashraf’s net worth in 2021
Despite not playing a lot of cricket at international level, Ashraf has managed to amass a tidy amount of money over the years.
According to AllFamousBirthday.com, the all-rounder has an estimated net worth of $1.5 million as of 2021.
Ashraf is still only 26 and his best years are ahead of him. He will be a regular for Afghanistan soon and doors in domestic leagues like the IPL could open as well. That will surely increase his net worth in the coming years.
