Early career[edit]

Later, in November 2009, he made his unofficial Twenty20 debut for Afghanistan against China[6] in the 2009 ACC Twenty20 Cup. He later played in the final of the tournament, where Afghanistan defeated the United Arab Emirates by 84 runs.[7]

Prior to Afghanistan's tour of Kenya in October 2010, Khaleqdaad had represented Afghanistan in 6 One Day International's. His debut in first-class cricket came during Afghanistan's tour of Kenya, when Afghanistan played Kenya in the 2009-10 ICC Intercontinental Cup.
