Afghanistan opener Mohammad Shahzad is one of the famous players from the nation who are known for their terrific performance on the field. The swashbuckling batter rarely thinks twice before taking on even the world-class bowlers. This quality of Shahzad makes him one of the most explosive openers in the world. Though he might get inched by the other quality batters from the top-ranked teams, his gutsy approach to batting is definitely one of the amazing things to watch.
A recent video of Shahzad is going viral on social media, but surprisingly it is not of his batting. The clip has a different Shahzad, who is all in free mood after returning from one his knocks and singing the Bollywood songs. The same video also contains another part of Shahzad’s singing, presumably from the post-match presentation wherein the player could be seen singing another Bollywood song while Rashid Khan could be seen enjoying the performance.

Afghanistan beat Namibia by 62 runs
Continuing their sensational run in the tournament, Afghanistan outplayed Namibia by 62 runs in Abu Dhabi. After winning the toss, Afghanistan skipper Mohammad Nabi opted to bat first once again and he and his teammates duly proved the decision right by posting a total of 160/5 on the tough wicket. Shahzad led the side with a 45 off 33, while Nabi also contributed with a valuable 32* off just 17 balls. In reply, Namibia could score only 98/9 in 20 overs as Naveen-ul-Haq and Hamid Hassan wreaked havoc with figures of 3/26 and 3/9.
Despite not being one of the favourites to win the ongoing T20 World Cup, Afghanistan have done well so far to consolidate the number 2 spot in the Group 2 points table against the likes of New Zealand and India. Additionally, they had almost defeated Pakistan in the thriller at Dubai International Cricket Stadium had there not been an Asif Ali depriving the Afghans of a win. Nonetheless, Afghanistan still have a good chance to make it to the final-4 of the tournament. They need to upset the winner of India vs New Zealand game and hope for some calculations to go in their favour.
