Afghanistan skipper Mohammad Nabi hilariously trolled himself after his team’s victory over Scotland in Sharjah. While sitting for the post-match press conference, he termed the task as the most difficult thing to do.
“Sabse mushkil kaam hai bhai yeh [This is most difficult job to do]” Nabi said as he settled down. He followed that with another rib-tickling question, as he asked “Kitne questions hain? [How many questions are there]. 5 minutes mei meri English khatam ho jayegi bhai [My English will be over in 5 minutes].”
Earlier, Nabi was seen crying during the national anthem. He was asked to lead the side after Rashid Khan decided to step down.
Rashid resigned from the captaincy before the tournament, saying he had not been consulted on the team selection. But the legspinner bemused Scotland’s tailenders in a 14-ball spell by claiming four wickets to wrap up big win.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz (46) smashed four sixes while opening batsman Hazratullah Zazai (44) hit three sixes and three fours to set the tone for a big total. Offspinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman took five wickets to lead his team to a massive win by 130 runs.
