Samiullah Shenwari (born December 31, 1987) is a right-handed batsman and leg break bowler who plays for Afghanistan.

Shenwari is a part of the rapidly rising Afghan cricket team that in under a year has won the World Cricket League Division Five, Division Four and Division Three, thus promoting them to Division Two and allowing them to partake in the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifier where they gained ODI status.

He later played for the newly formed Afghan Cheetahs team in the Faysal Bank Twenty-20 Cup 2011-12.

Shenwari was run out just one run short of his highest score in ODIs. He had scored 82 against Kenya in Amstelveen in 2010. This was his fourth fifty in ODIs and his first against a Test nation. [1]

Asghar Stanikzai and Shenwari added 164 runs for the sixth wicket for Afghanistan which was the highest sixth-wicket partnership in the Asia Cup beating the 112 runs added by Alok Kapali and Mahmudullah against India at National Stadium, Karachi in 2008.[2]

The partnership was Afghanistan's highest for the sixth wicket in ODIs and their first century partnership for that wicket. Their previous highest partnership for the sixth wicket was 86 between Raees Ahmadzai and Shenwari against Scotland in Benoni in 2009. The partnership was also Afghanistan's third-highest partnership for any wicket and only their sixth hundred partnerships in ODIs.
