Hashmatullah Shahidi, a left-handed batter with excellent temperament and sound technique, began playing cricket while growing up and idolising Kumar Sangakkara. He has a unique responsibility to start innings and continue to play through innings to create a strong foundation. Despite the fact that his ODI strike rate is not very impressive, he is assigned this responsibility.

He attracted the attention of selectors after scoring 163 runs while batting for Band-e-Amir Region versus SpeenGhar Region in the championship game of the 2017–18 Ahmad Shah Abdali Tournament. In 2013, he played his first ODI against Kenya. Hashmatullah gained notoriety after scoring 257 runs and scoring a commendable 97 runs against Pakistan in the 2018 Asia Cup. Hashmatullah once again finished the pursuit of 263 in a world cup 2019 exhibition match versus Pakistan with a score of 74*.

In the first test match Afghanistan played against India in 2018, he was one of the eleven players that played. His score of 36 not out is the second-highest for Afghanistan. In March 2021, when playing Zimbabwe, he achieves a test cricket milestone by scoring 200 runs without being eliminated.
