Gulf Today Report
Kings XI Punjab and Afghanistan off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman's wedding photos and videos have gone viral.
Most probably because his Afghanistan team-mates are seen dancing on the occasion. Mohammad Nabi and Gulbadin Naib are among the players seen dancing in the video.
Rahman, the world's second ranked T20 bowler, had a quiet 2020 IPL in the UAE recently, as he got to play only two matches in which he failed to take a wicket while his team finished sixth and failed to qualify for the playoffs. He will soon leave for Australia to represent Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League.
While representing Kings XI Punjab in the IPL, Rahman mostly sat on the bench as legendary leg-spinning coach Anil Kumble preferred leg-spinners Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin.
Even though Rahman is yet to turn 20, he has played for various T20 leagues around the world. Besides the Afghanistan senior team, the national under-19 side, and Brisbane Heat, Rahman has also represented Comilla Victorians, Hampshire, Nangarhar Leopards, Bengal Tigers, Middlesex, Qalandars, Cumilla Warriors, Asia XI, and Jamaica Tallawahs.
Another video of Rahman went viral on social media. The star cricketer was teaching Pashto to Bollywood actor Preity Zinta.
Preity said oh her Twitter account, “Throwback to all the awesome IPL 2020 memories and behind the scene fun chatting with @mujeeb_r88
is always fun specially when he teaches me new words in Pashto…”
She also said, Can anyone figure out our Conversation????”
