MEP: An attack by unidentified gunmen on one of the national cricket team’s players failed and he luckily survived the assault.
Farid Hotak, the country’s Cricket Board spokesman told the Middle East Press the attack occurred on Saturday evening (7 January) on the vehicle of Shapur Zadran, in Bagrami area of capital Kabul.
He said Zadran’s vehicle partially damaged in the attack, but he and his brother received no casualties.
