Mujeeb Ur Rahman, an all-round spin bowler of Afghanistan, dedicated his Player of the Match trophy to the victims of the recent catastrophic earthquake. He made the touching gesture after Afghanistan defeated England by 69 runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi as part of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023.

In an emotional post-game statement, Mujeeb highlighted the team’s dedication while also expressing his joy in defeating the reigning champs. “It’s this kind of opportunity that we work hard for, and I’m really proud of the boys. I want to dedicate this Player of the Match award to all the victims of the earthquake back home,” he said.

Mujeeb contributed significantly to Afghanistan’s victory by scoring 28 runs and taking three significant wickets against England. He emphasized the difficulties of bowling in the powerplay as a spinner but gave the team’s strategy and his steadfast attitude credit for their victory. Afghanistan won the ODI World Cup for the second time in history after limiting England to 215 runs while amassing a daunting total of 284.

Mujeeb praised the team management for giving him confidence after his batting performance. “It’s all about the management. They give me confidence in the nets. I just try to hit the ball while batting in the nets, and I want to contribute while batting lower down the order. Those 20-25 runs will prove to be crucial,” he remarked.

On the basis of a higher net run rate than Sri Lanka, Afghanistan’s victory moved them up to position six in the 2023 World Cup standings. The team’s fortitude and compassion in the face of hardship were evident in Mujeeb’s dedication to the earthquake victims.
