One of the finest players from Afghanistan and a global T20 superstar Mohammad Nabi picks the #1 batsman in the world at the moment in his latest chat to cricTracker. The veteran all-rounder who has been the face of the Afghanistan team since their inception into world cricket recently hung up his boots in the longest format of the game.
The world cricket at the moment is ruled by the famous fab 4 that includes Virat Kohli, Joe Root, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson. Each of the aforementioned players are reputed players and one of the champion players for their respective country.
When Nabi was asked about the better batsman of these 4, he said
It is Smith these days, I guess!
Mohammad Nabi is famously called as Mr. President and he reveals the reason for attaining the nickname.
It was Kevin Pietersen. We both were playing for Quetta Gladiators and I won 1 game for the team where we needed 16 runs in the last over. It was my last match as I was going for the Zimbabwe series while we were going back to the team hotel. Kevin said Nabi is the next President of Afghanistan. He used to call me as President while he was doing the commentary.
The former Indian captain MS Dhoni is an inspiration to everyone and his sheer presence in the field is something that is admired by the opposition players as well. When asked about the 2-time world cup winning captain to Mohammad Nabi, he said
MS Dhoni is the best, calm, and a great human being. The doors of his room are open 24*7 for everyone where he has tea with people and talks to them. I have met him 2-3 times and he is really a nice man
