Batters. This guy hits everything with a straight bat, whereas our batsmen tends to hit across the line most of the time. Why can’t our batsmen hit proper cricket shots with a straight bat and score at a decent rate??

It is in fact amazing.
Look at Mujeeb and Rashid - world class spinners
Look at Gurbaz last night...pure class
Then the veterans like Nabi.

Where de heck do these guys learn their cricket. I am not aware of any cricket academies in Afghanistan

Dem men have the Persian warrior spirit in them Bro.

As Nabi once told a reporter who asked him if he ever gets nervous out in the middle, he replied "when you have bombs falling all around your neighbourhood and you wake up wondering if that day will be your last, a game of cricket is the very last thing to feel nervous about."

Gurbaz


He played some handsome strokes. One criticism is that he is a bit too ultra aggressive but I guess that was his plan during the power-plays.

His keeping though isn't quite up to international standards as yet.
