The Afghanistan cricket team is impressing everyone at the 2021 T20 World Cup and Mohammad Nabi is arguably their most popular name.

The 36-year-old veteran was named as the Afghans’ skipper for the tournament after Rashid Khan stepped down from his role as captain.

After two wins in three games, it has to be said that Nabi is leading his side really well. He has won fans’ hearts over the years with his brilliant performances with bat and ball, and he’s continuing to do that even now at 36 years of age.

So, what is Nabi’s current net worth? Here’s what we know…

Mohammad Nabi: Net worth in 2021

Nabi has made a decent amount of money over the years thanks to his career at international level as well as in the Indian Premier League.

According to PrimesWorld, Nabi earns a little over $134,000-a-year from the Afghanistan cricket board. He has earned over $575,000 in the IPL since 2017 and he makes some good money through endorsement deals as well.

The outlet reveals that Nabi’s estimated net worth in 2021 is about $1.2 million. Good performances at the World Cup will only make that number go up.

Records held by Nabi

Nabi will go down as one of the greatest players to ever play for Afghanistan. The 36-year-old holds a number of impressive records at international level.

The Afghan skipper holds the record for the fastest fifty by an Afghanistan cricketer in T20 Internationals. He is also the first bowler of his country to take 100 ODI wickets and the first player to play 100 games in the 50-over format.

Nabi is also the first Afghanistani player to be picked by an IPL side. SunRisers Hyderabad bought him at the 2017 auction and he has since played 17 times for them over the last four seasons.
