The Mohammad Nabi-led Afghanistan cricket team recorded a huge 130-run victory over Scotland in their first match in Group 12 of the Super 12. Captain Nabi looked very emotional during the national anthem before the team match and was very happy at the press conference after winning the match.
Listen to the news
Actually, Nabi, who came to the press conference after the match, looked very tense. Waiting for questions before the show started, he said ‘the hardest part is brother’. After this, he took a deep breath and asked the man sitting next to him questioningly, ‘How many questions are there? And then he said ‘my English will be over in 5 minutes brother’.

After the beginning of the Taliban rule in Afghanistan, discussions began about the future of cricket and players there, and the team’s participation in the T20 World Cup was also in doubt. However, the ICC later told the team to play with their national flag.
Although Afghanistan were not considered rivals for the tournament, in the match in Sharjah, they communicated their intentions to other teams with their batting and bowling. Batting first, Team India were all out for 190, followed by Mujeeb for five and Rashid for four with Scotland all out for 60.
