The Whole World Knows About Rashid & Mujeeb: Mohammad Nabi
Afghanistan’s mystery spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman took five for 20 and along with Rashid Khan accumulated for nine opposition wickets for just 29 runs.
“It’s important to win at the start of the tournament. This was our plan, to bat first and post a big total. Both the openers started well, we finished the powerplay on a good note. The running between the wickets was good, we rotated the strike really well and Najib played well to help as post such a big total. The world knows we have some good spinners in the form of Rashid and Mujeeb, they’ve played everywhere in the world. We have a very good team combination. When we play the local tournaments, I, Mujeeb and Rashid are the most expensive bowlers. Mujeeb is playing his first T20 World Cup match and he got the Player of the Match award, that’s good to see, it’s fantastic” said an elated Nabi in the post-match presentation.
