London: Afghanistan cricket player Rashid Khan, who is presently playing for Trent Rockets in the first edition of the Hundred, is worried about his family in Afghanistan. He fears he cannot get them out of the country,” said Former England Skipper and commentator Kevin Pietersen.
“There’s a lot of things that are happening at home. We had a long chat here on the boundary talking about it and he’s worried: he can’t get his family out of Afghanistan and there’s a lot of things happening for him,” Pietersen said on Sky Sports.
“For him to turn up and put on a performance like this under the pressure that he is currently under…. for him to be able to forget that stuff and navigate his story and continue the momentum that he has – I think that’s probably one of the most heart-warming stories of this Hundred so far,” he added.
Flights operation at Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKI) is widely affected due to the ongoing tumult in the country.
