Afghanistan Cricket Board selection committee named the ODI and T20I squads for the Zimbabwe series which will be played in Zimbabwe from 4th to 14th June.

From the 16 players who were part of the ODI series against Bangladesh in February, all-rounder Gulbadin Naib has been left out, while the slow left-arm spinner Zia ur Rahman Akbar, who was the leading wicket-taker in the recently concluded Green Afghanistan One-Day Cup, has been added to the 16-man squad. The left-arm wrist-spinner Noor Ahmad and the right-arm fast bowler Nijat Masoud have been named as reserves.

Likewise, from the 16 players who were part of the squad for T20I series against Bangladesh in March 2022, Ihsanullah Jannat and Noor Ahmad have replaced Qais Ahmad and Mujeeb ur Rahman in the 16-member side.
