Mohammad Nabi Named Rangpur Rangers Captain

Rangpur Rangers have named veteran allrounder Mohammad Nabi as their captain for the upcoming season of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). The seventh edition of the BPL will start on December 11 with the game between Chattogram Challengers and Sylhet Thunder kickstarting the competition. On the same day, Rangpur Rangers will open their season too by taking on Comilla Warriors.

Rangpur Rangers will have high hopes from Mohammad Nabi. The Afghanistan star is one of the most experienced players in BPL. He has been playing in the league since 2013. He started his journey in BPL with Sylhet Royals after being roped in as an injury replacement for Andre Russell. In his maiden season, he picked up 18 wickets to finish the competition as his team’s highest wicket-taker.

A couple of years later, he was picked up by Rangpur Riders. This time around, he failed to do well and managed just six wickets while scoring only 37 runs. IN 2016, he moved to Chittagong Vikings and proved himself again by picking up 19 wickets. In 2017, Mohammad Nabi was signed up by Comilla Victorians before being picked up by the Rangers in this year’s draft.

Rangpur Rangers, who were previously known as the Rangpur Riders, have won the BPL once in 2017. In the last season, they could not progress ahead of the playoffs. With Nabi at helm, the team will be looking to make the most of his experience and win the tournament for the second time.

An experienced campaigner:

Mohammad Nabi has played for T20 teams across the world. He has plied his trade in the Indian Premier League, Big Bash League, Caribbean Premier League as well as several other competitions. The 34-year old, who played in Afghanistan’s first-ever ODI, T20I as well as Test, has played 238 T20Is so far. He has scored 3,617 runs with the help of ten fifties. With the ball, he has picked up 239 wickets thus far.
