The foundation will especially address the issue of affordable healthcare facilities and clean drinking water.

The leg-spinner is the top-ranked bowler in the MRF ICC T20I Rankings, and is No.2 in ODIs.

The bowler plays for Sussex in English county. He will be a part of Afghanistan’s squad for the tour of Ireland later this month.
