AFGHANS ARE A HIT

Mohammad Nabi has become the first Afghan to hit a century in List A cricket. Playing for Pakistan Customs in the ABN-AMRO Cup - Pakistan's premier domestic one-day tournament – against Karachi Zebras, he shared in a 109 run partnership for the fourth wicket with Rehan Rafiq and went on to score 112 not out from 103 balls, including seven 4s and five 6s. Pakistan Customs won the match by five wickets with four overs to spare, chasing 298.

Mohammad Nabi, along with compatriot Hamid Hassan, played for the MCC last year.

Four Afghan fast bowlers will be taking part in a training camp at the PCB National Academy in Lahore in April. The Afghanistan team will also play three friendlies in England on their way to Jersey for World Cricket League Division 5 in May.
