A few Afghan players, such as Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi, have also called for peace in their nation, but to no purpose since the Taliban has seized control and made life difficult for the citizens. Nabi and Rashid are presently playing the Hundred and will face Pakistan in 3 ODIs.

The prospect of the series commencing on 01′ September is too uncertain because Afghan players have yet to grant their approval. “It is expected that the Afghan national cricket team will soon travel to Sri Lanka to play three international one-day matches against Pakistan,” ACB said in an Interaction.

Rashid worried about his family out of Afghanistan: Pietersen

Rashid, who is a member of the Trent Rockets in the Hundred, is concerned regarding his family in Afghanistan, where the Taliban is destroying devastation. He also told former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen how tough it is to relocate his family due to the current atmosphere in the nation.

“There’s a lot of things that are happening at home. We had a long chat here on the boundary talking about it and, he’s worried: he can’t get his family out of Afghanistan and, there’s a lot of things happening for him,” said Pietersen.

Even this, Rashid has bowled brilliantly for Trent Rockets and is the tournament’s 2nd highest to take wickets. The leg-narrative, spinner’s according to Pietersen, is among the Hundred’s most uplifting.

“For him to turn up and put on a performance like this under the pressure that he is currently under…for him to be able to forget that stuff and navigate his story and continue the momentum that he has — I think that’s probably one of the most heart-warming stories of this Hundred so far,” added Pietersen.
