Mohammad Nabi-led Afghanistan cricket team are putting on a great show at the ICC T20 World Cup 2021

Afghan wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Shahzad’s video singing Bollywood songs has gone viral on social media

Afghanistan has been at the top of their game in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021 after having won against Scotland in their Super 12s opener and following it up with a closely-fought encounter with neighbours Pakistan wherein they eventually lost by 5 wickets with an over to spare.

But the Mohammad Nabi-led side are making life difficult for even the best names in the business as they hope to be serious contenders to qualify for the semi-finals of the marquee ICC event. With 1 win already under their belt, the Afghans will surely look to upset one of the big teams in the T20 WC.

Squaring off against Namibia in Abu Dhabi, Afghanistan have posted a total of 160/5 after 20 overs. Riding high on the success of world-class spinners like Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, the dynamic Asian side had depended the score and got their second victory with 62 runs in the ICC World T20 this year.

Although the likes of Nabi, Rashid, Mujeeb, and the others have been in the limelight when it comes to their on-field moments of magic, wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Shahzad is stealing the headlines for his humourous histrionics off the field.

The 33-year-old right-hander earlier won hearts for his quirky pre-match presser, where he hilariously called himself a “natural beauty” who takes just 35 seconds to get ready and receives compliments from girls saying that he looks cute. The hard-hitting Afghan opener has now grabbed the spotlight for his amusing video that has gone viral on social media.

Shahzad can be seen humming a few famous Bollywood tunes as he walks back from his on-ground duties. In a video shared on Twitter, a reporter is seen saying that there is “never a dull moment when you’re with Shahzad”.
