Afghanistan’ all-rounder Mohammad Nabi has been signed by Northamptonshire for the 2021 T20 blast. Nabi is ranked as number 1 T20 all rounder and head coach by ICC. Nabi is highly demanded player around the globe as he is a powerful hitter and offspinner. 

Northamptonshire will be his third country. prior to this, he had played his previous seasons at Leicestershire in 2018 and Kent in 2019.

For several years, Northamptonshire was not buying players as they were not having budget. But it seems like year of cost cutting has improved their financial condition. the middle of the team was weak and the team was looking for a better option for the order. After bringing Tom Taylor and Mohammad Nabi, the team has all the orders strong.
