Here is the pair of cousins who will play together at the T20 World Cup 2022
It is always a special moment if individuals from the same family get to represent the nation. It becomes even better when they participate in a big event like the T20 World Cup. In the past, we have seen the likes of Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan be a part of the same team selected for the World Cup. At the upcoming T20 World Cup, too, we have an example of relatives playing together at a big event. On that note, in this article, we take a look at the pair of cousins who will play together at the T20 World Cup 2022.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Ibrahim Zadran
Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Ibrahim Zadran are both cousins as per Wikipedia. They are talented youngsters and both will be a part of the playing XI. While Mujeeb will assist Rashid Khan in the spin department, Ibrahim will form a vital part of the batting line-up. Afghanistan will hope that this cousin duo be in good form to help the team do well in the tournament.
Afghanistan will want the big guns to fire
Asia Cup 2022 started on a bright note but then did not go in the desired route for the Afghans. Considering the depth and talent in the squad, the team will hope to perform better at the 2022 T20 World Cup. They will want the big guns such as Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi to fire. Rashid has to influence games consistently and must also give depth to the batting unit. Nabi is the captain of the squad and will have to do the finishing duties while also contributing some tidy overs with the ball. Mujeeb is also an experienced campaigner and must help the other spinners to put the Afghans in a good position.
