Yeah he is absolute quality, but it will be hard for him to make a good career out of playing for the afgans. I think he will probably eventually move to another country, most probably england and try and gain english citizenship after 4 yrs or so. He would still have to play as an overseas player in that time.
But he is 25 and has a lot of ability. Its amazing that afghanistan can produce one high quality bowler like him and we can only produce one half decent bowler (mashrafe) across 30 odd years.
