The Afghanistan player had lost his father in January 2019
A year back in January 2019, he lost his father. During such time, he was playing in the Big Bash League as a part of Adelaide Strikers. Even though he was broken to bits, he continued to play and went onto playing against Brisbane Heat the next day.
He opened his heart out about the incident during an interview. He expressed the struggle his father endured to raise the family, along with the immense support he showed. Even then, he kept strong and believed that life needs to move on. Therefore, his mother, brothers, nephews, and everyone else will come together and help each other move forward.
“It happens. It’s life. In this situation, my family has really supported me… Especially my mum, my brothers, my nephews. They were encouraging me a lot from back home.”
We hope he finds the strength and stands strong again.
