For Team Afghanistan, the ongoing World T20 is turning out to be a pretty memorable one. They have won 2 out of their 3 matches, which has put them below Pakistan in the second position on the table.
This means that they are above last year's ODI World Cup finalist, New Zealand, and semi-finalist, India. That is some achievement.

Now, while it's tough to predict where the upcoming matches will take the team, one thing can be said for sure, we have all become huge fans of one of its players - Mohammad Shahzad. He is the coolest guy, just see for yourself.
1. When asked about his motivations in life, he said - sleeping and eating.
Main do cheezon ko qurbaan nahin kar sakta, ek sona aur ek khaana.
2. He likes singing, so he goes ahead and...sings. What a wonderful quality, he is really good at singing too.
3. He thinks of himself as a man with "natural beauty". We think so too, Shehzad.
4. He is possibly the only guy who can give an open challenge to Virat Kohli, by saying that he doesn't need to diet like the Indian captain because he can still hit bigger sixes than him.
Afghanistani players, in general, keep things fun outside the field and we love them for that. Hoping for more such moments.
