Mohammad Nabi has had a quiet Indian Premier League thus far, having played only two games for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the two games that the Afghan player has played in this season, he has scored a total of 18 runs, with a high score of 14.
With the ball, the all-rounder has picked up a solo wicket in the tournament, conceding 47 runs at an economy rate of 9..40. However, off the field, the Afghan all-rounder is constantly present on Twitter, praising his teammates following their incredible run in the tournament.
This time around, the all-rounder took to Twitter to appreciate the England wicket-keeper Jos Buttler after his record-equalling haul against his former side Mumbai Indians. Jos Buttler began the innings with four consecutive fifties in the tournament and had the chance to equal the record set by Virender Sehwag.
A comfortable victory for the Royals
A comfortable seven-wicket victory is what the Rajasthan Royals achieved at the defending champions Mumbai Indians backyard. Buttler was arguably the most crucial player in the playing XI for the visitors, as they sought to make a surge into the playoffs.
Buttler’s 53-ball 94 run knock led the Royals to their first victory at the Wankhede in the past five games at the venue. After having won the toss, Royals skipper Ajinkya Rahane decided to bowl first in a ground which has always favoured the team batting second.
Nabi’s tweet after Buttler’s match-winner:
Nabi, on Twitter, posted “Another match-winning bating @josbuttler ” after his fabulous knock against his former side Mumbai Indians.

Alongside his tweet, the Afghan player also posted a photo where Jos Buttler is seen alongside Rashid Khan and Nabi himself.
This win takes the Royals much closer to the play-offs spot, with Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore fighting to stay alive in the competition. The last stage of the Indian Premier League is going to be a topsy-turvy affair as only two sides have qualified thus far in the tournament.
