The Afghanistan cricket team may have failed to qualify for the semifinals in the ODI Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, but they have been winning hearts with their terrific performance. They are the only team in Asia after team India to beat many leading cricket teams.
Indians fans were in awe of their skills and fully supported them on the ground. Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan was so impressed with the team that he would dance with them every time they won a match. He even invited the whole team for lunch at his residence.
While the Afghani team won hearts with their performance on the field, batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been winning hearts off the field as well.

Recently, a video has been going viral on social media that shows Gurbaz silently giving money to the needy and homeless people sleeping on the streets of Ahmedabad. The star batsman can be seen putting Rs 500 notes each near the people who are sleeping on the street at night.
He arrives in a car and silently puts the currency notes near the people while they are asleep so that they can celebrate their Diwali. This noble gesture of the Afghani batsman has been winning hearts online with cricket lovers applauding him online.
“Gurbaz is doing it without any PR or camera around on the eve of Diwali is the most touching thing you will ever see. This is why these Afghans are loved so much in India,” a fan commented.
Another fan wrote, “This is such a beautiful gesture by Gurbaz that too at night 3AM. It would have been even great if an Indian cricketer also did this.”
“He is making sure that everyone celebrates Diwali before he leaves for Afghanistan,” shared another fan.
