AHMEDABAD: In a heartwarming Diwali gesture, Afghanistan’s opening batter, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, was spotted in the streets of Ahmedabad in the early hours of Sunday, distributing money to those in need.
Gurbaz quietly placed money beside people sleeping on the curbs without disturbing their rest, embodying the spirit of the festival of lights. Watch the video here..
Despite Afghanistan concluding their 2023 ODI World Cup campaign with a loss to South Africa at the Narendra Modi Stadium, the team, led by Hashmatullah Shahidi, showcased an impressive performance, securing notable victories against Pakistan and England.
They even gave five-time champions Australia a significant challenge at the Wankhede Stadium.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz played a crucial role in Afghanistan’s campaign, amassing 280 runs in nine matches with an average of 31.11 and a strike rate of 98.93.
Notable contributions included fifties in the team’s wins over England and Pakistan. While his form tapered towards the end of the campaign, with 56 runs in his last four matches, Gurbaz’s Diwali gesture exemplifies a different kind of victory off the cricket field.
