Hamid Hassan honed his cricket skills as a child growing up in a refugee camp in Peshawar. His passion for the game won out over his family’s desire for him to seek an education, however, and rose to play for his country.

The fast bowler debuted for Afghanistan in its first one-day international in 2009 and collected 41 wickets in his first 21 ODIs.

In good signs for Hassan’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 aspirations, Hassan took a career best 5-45 against United Arab Emirates in December 2014.
