They will also carry the record of being the only team to beat 2016 World T20 champions West Indies in the tournament.
They are behind India, who are second with 75 percent success rate. MS Dhoni-led team won 15, lost 5 and one no-result out of 21 T20Is.
The top T20I team in terms of success rate in 2016 is New Zealand, who have recorded a success rate of 80 per cent. The Kiwis have won 8, lost 2 in total 10 T20Is in 2016.
Here’s the list of top 10 teams in terms of success percentage in T20Is in 2016. Here is another good news for all Afghanistan cricket fans. Their star batsman Mohammad Shahzad will feature among the top 10 run-getters in T20Is in 2016.
He stands 6th among the leading run-getters in this format in 2016. He has scored 407 runs @ 37 in 12 T20Is with one century and one fifty with a highest score of 118*.
What separates him from the list of top 10 run-getters in T20Is this year is his strike rate of 151.30 which is second to Martin Guptill’s 171.92.
It looks 2016 has been a great year for Afghanistan and their players. (Cricwizz)
