As the Cricket World Cup 2023 approaches, the Afghanistan cricket team has touched down in India and is gearing up with warm-up matches. Their inaugural face-off is scheduled against Bangladesh on October 7 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala. On October 11, the spotlight will be on the clash between India and Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, where a special guest will be in attendance – Afghanistan’s very own enigma, Wazhma Ayoubi.
Wazhma captured hearts and headlines at the T20 World Cup last year when she graced the India vs Afghanistan match in Dubai, resplendent in traditional attire, proudly waving the Afghan flag.
This year, due to travel constraints, Wazhma couldn’t be physically present in Sri Lanka or Pakistan to rally behind the Afghan cricket team during the Asia Cup 2023. Nevertheless, she radiated support from the UAE, her current residence and workplace. With a massive following of 687k on Instagram, Wazhma is not only an exuberant Instagram influencer but also an accomplished fashion designer.
In a delightful revelation, she shared a photo of Rashid Khan on Instagram, accompanied by the caption: “It’s not just about the suit, but about the caliber of the individual adorning it. Crafting the distinguished attire for #CWC23, a labor of love for our esteemed #AfghanAtalan by @lamanclothing, was an absolute joy. P.S.: We accomplished this feat in a mere 2 days!”
Come October 11, Wazhma will be front and center, eagerly anticipating the clash between India and Afghanistan in Delhi. Speculation is rife about what she’ll wear for this monumental contest. While her primary allegiance lies with the Afghanistan team, it’s worth noting that India holds a special place in her heart as her second favorite team.
Wazhma Ayoubi Confirms on Twitter:
In response to an inquiry on X (formerly Twitter), Wazhma confirmed her presence in India to witness Afghanistan’s showdown in Delhi on October 11. The cricketing world eagerly awaits this epic encounter, not only for the on-field spectacle but also for the anticipated sartorial statement that Wazhma is sure to make.
