Afghanistan off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman was seen plying his trade for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Now that the cash-rich league has been completed, Mujeeb has decided to utilise the time to start a new inning in his life.
The world’s second-ranked T20 bowler tied the knot on Friday. Now, the wedding photos and videos have gone viral and most probably because his Afghanistan teammates were seen dancing on a special occasion.
Afghani journalist and cricket author Jafar Haand posted a video on his official Twitter handle where all-rounder Mohammad Nabi and former Afghanistan captain Gulbadin Naib can be seen dancing and enjoying the night.
