Afghanistan struggles every day to cope up with life. Cricket like many other countries is not only a form of entertainment but a national hope. A hope of a new dawn. And Nabi has been the torchbearer of it since 2009. He is the complete player that every T20 team wants and thus the demand from varied franchises. You send him up the order, he can drop anchor. You send for the slog overs, he knows how to rip the skin of the ball. The team is in trouble, he veils himself as the glue. As an offie, Nabi can tease you with his loopy ones and wreck you with his quicker darts. As a fielder he is safe as a house.
Be it their first win in World Cups against Scotland in 2015 or their triumph against the eventual champions Windies in the 2016 T20 WC, Nabi was there. Even Gayle did the Gangnam dance after Afghanistan's win, Nabi was there. He slips into roles that you want him to. A quintessential all-rounder with supreme abilities.
Rightly so he became the first Afghan cricketer to be picked up by an IPL team. Sunrisers knew they had made a steal by pocketing a priceless asset at 30 lakhs. He might not be as mystique and eye-catching as Rashid Khan, or as flamboyant and dashing as Mohammad Shahzad. He is far from being as sharp as Dawlat or Shapoor Zadran but he is and will remain Afghanistan's guiding light for times to come. His tale on the cricketing field has followed a chronology like none else with elements of drama in it.
On a tour to India in the 2000s, he was noticed by Mike Gatting when he hit a ton against the visiting MCC side. He later went on to play for the MCC, making his first-Class debut with them. Nabi rose to fame when he took 11 wickets in the 2009 ICC World Cricket League Division Three, helping Afghanistan to progress to the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifier. After Afghanistan gained ODI status in that tournament, Nabi made 58 in his debut game against Scotland.
In Afghanistan's debut First-Class match during the Intercontinental Cup, Nabi made 102 in their first innings against Zimbabwe XI. In the next year, Nabi made his T20I debut in February 2010 against Ireland. Later that year Nabi was named as the Afghanistan captain for the Asian Games but Nawroz Mangal was restored back to the position soon after the tournament.
Nabi played for the Afghan Cheetahs team which competed in the Faysal Bank T20 Cup in Pakistan in 2011-12. In 2013, Nabi turned up for the Bangladesh Premier League side Sylhet Royals and helped his team reach the semi-finals with some splendid performances. He took 16 wickets in 13 games and was one of the top batsmen in the tournament.
Nabi led Afghanistan's successful campaign in the 2014 Asia Cup when they defeated Bangladesh, their first win over a Test playing nation. Although that was the only victory they achieved in the tournament, the country won many hearts across the world with a gritty show. He was also chosen to lead the side during the 2015 World Cup as well. Since then the Afghanistan juggernaut with Nabi as one of the wheels has gained more pace with them being awarded Test status by the ICC. Expect Nabi to be there as well!
