Afghanistan on Tuesday named their squad for the 2022 edition of the Asia Cup, with Samiullah Shinwari making a comeback to the side.The team will be led by all-rounder Mohammad Nabi and sees one change from the 16-member squad in the ongoing tour of Ireland. 

Shinwari has replaced Sharafuddin Ashraf, who is now a part of the reserves while spinner Noor Ahmed has also been added to the side.The 34-year-old Shinwari last represented Afghanistan in a T20I in March 2020, in a match against Ireland.
