Noor Ali Zadran
Noor Ali Zadran (Pashto: نور علی ځدراڼ; born 10 July 1988) is an Afghan cricketer. Ali is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-fast bowler who currently plays for the Afghanistan national cricket team. He cites Ricky Ponting as his cricketing hero and inspiration to play. His nephews Mujeeb Ur Rahman Zadran and Ibrahim Zadran also are Afghan international cricketers. Ali made his representative international debut for the Afghanistan U-17 cricket team against the United Arab Emirates Under-17s in 2004. Ali's debut for the senior team came against Saudi Arabia in the 2006 Middle East Cup. Ali made his Twenty20 debut for Afghanistan in the 2007 ACC Twenty20 Cup against Oman. Ali was a part of the rapidly rising Afghan cricket team that from 2008 to 2009 won the World Cricket League Division Five, Division Four, and Division Three, therefore promoting them to Division Two and allowing them to take part in the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifiers. In the World Cup Qualifier, he made his List-A debut against Denmark. Later in the tournament, Ali scored 122 against Canada in the Super Eights in the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifier; this match predated Afghanistan's ODI status (achieved later in the tournament) but was a List A-game. During the tournament, Afghanistan gained ODI status. He made his One Day International debut against Scotland, where he scored 45 runs.
