Afghan Voice Agency(AVA)_Monitoring, “When you win on the cricket field, an engineer thinks about winning in his profession, a doctor thinks about winning in his profession, a teacher thinks that in his profession, he will present qualified individuals so that the country can develop in all areas,” Muttaqi said.
He stated that the Afghan team managed to be among the best teams in the world under difficult conditions.
“It is a source of happiness that every section praises you. No one opposes you. It is hoped that you will also remain committed to national and Islamic interests… Religion does not conflict with sports. With your religiosity, hundreds of thousands of young people will acquire religiosity,” Muttaqi said.
He wished the team success in the upcoming series against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, in the Asia Cup and the World Cup.
