22-year old Afghani Mohammad Nabi has followed his compatriot Hamid Hassan in playing for the MCC. In a three-day match at Arundel in Sussex against the visiting Sri Lanka A side, which contained six full-internationals, Nabi top-scored with 43 out of 167 in the first innings and took a wicket.

Indian Test-player Aakash Chopra who opened for the MCC, said “Nabi did really well and is an excellent cricketer.” Nabi is currently on the MCC's Young Cricketers programme.
