28-year-old Gulbadin Naib has been one of Afghanistan's most senior players in the past few years. The up and coming national team has spawned a lot of champion players but according to Naib, cricket in the country has also been affected by corruption. Naib led the Afghanistan side in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup out of nowhere, in which the team failed to win a single match.
