Karim Janat was born in 1998 in the capital of Afghanistan – Kabul. Already in childhood, he learned what cricket is, as the elder brother Asghar, the former captain of the Afghan national team, was involved in this sport at a high level. When Karim was only six years old, Asghar Janat had already made his debut in the national team. Karim Janat has a nephew who is only three years younger – Waqar Salamkheil. In the Shpageeza Cricket League, Salamkheil played for Band-e-Amir Dragons. He recently made his debut for the Afghanistan national team.

Experts note that Asghar Janat is good at hitting the ball. In turn, Karim Janat is considered a right-arm fast bowler. Karim made his high-level debut in the Twenty20 International match that took place in December 2016. Afghanistan met with the UAE team. Karim Janat was one of the best players of the match with Mohammad Nabi. So, during the match, the duo of leaders ran 40 runs. This spurt helped the Afghan team win an important victory over the opponent.
