Afghanistan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz displayed a heartfelt gesture towards the homeless people in Ahmedabad. In a video that has gone viral on social media, the young opening batter was seen distributing cash to the people sleeping on the streets so they could celebrate Diwali. Netizens have thoroughly praised him for winning hearts on and off the field.
In the video going viral on X, the 21-year-old opener was seen walking on the streets in Ahmedabad at 3:00 am and keeping some cash beside the people sleeping on the pavement.
Below is the heartwarming video clip:
Gurbaz had a stellar 2023 World Cup as he forged a formidable partnership at the top with Ibrahim Zadran. The right-handed finished the tournament with 280 runs in 9 matches at 31.11 alongside 2 half-centuries and a strike rate of 98.94.
Afghanistan crash to consecutive losses to end World Cup campaign:
Despite Afghanistan's encouraging 2023 World Cup campaign, headlined by victories over England, Sri Lanka, and the Netherlands, they could not sneak into the semi-finals. Hashmatullah Shahidi's men finished their campaign with successive defeats to Australia and South Africa.
The defeat to Australia at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will hurt them the most, given they had reduced the five-time champions to 91-7 at one stage while defending 291. However, Mujeeb-ur-Rahman dropping Glenn Maxwell's catch proved to be quite costly as the all-rounder smashed a double-hundred to script an unforgettable victory for Australia.
