Before the match between Afghanistan and Scotland, something happened on the field that would make anyone emotional. The Taliban-occupied Afghan team sang their national anthem and hoisted their country’s flag. While singing the national anthem, Afghanistan’s captain Mohammad Nabi cried because he could not control his emotions.
The 17th match of the T20 World Cup was played between Afghanistan and Scotland. Afghanistan has recently been occupied by the Taliban. So the situation there is not normal. Despite the situation, the Afghan team came on the field and represented their country.
