Afghanistan international cricketer Najib Tarakai had a tragic accident on Friday and has been in a coma for 22 hours. The accident was so horrific that Najib still could not be seen moving. He was hit by a car in Jalalabad city and was rushed to a hospital. The condition of the opener is so critical that fans are demanding that he be taken to Kabul or a neighboring country for treatment.
Najeeb, 29, has represented the country in one ODI and 12 Twenty20 matches. In 2017, he scored 90 runs in Twenty20 matches against Ireland. Afghanistan had beaten Ireland by 17 runs in that match. In 2019, he played his last Twenty20 international against Bangladesh in Dhaka.
He has scored 2030 runs in 24 first-class cricket at an average of 47.20. He has 6 centuries and 10 fifties to his name in first-class cricket. He had recently made a strong showing in the Spaghetti Cricket League. He hit five fours and a six off 22 balls against the Kabul Eagles for the Knights. He has played 33 Twenty20 matches in his entire career and has scored 700 runs. List A cricket has 553 runs in 17 matches.
ACB is also in regular contact with relevant authorities to assess his health condition and shift him to Kabul or outside Afghanistan as soon as possible whenever allowed by health officials. ACB staff and leadership pray for his speedy recovery and wish him good health.
