IPL was a chance for him to show the worldinfo-icon that his country had got talent, the Press Trust of India quoted Nabi as saying on Friday.

"There are lots of expectations from me and Rashid to perform in IPL. Afghan cricket fans are waiting. Hopefully, we will perform well," he told reporters in Hyderabad.
