Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mohammad Nabi Break Ramadan Fast On Field During AFG vs IRE 3rd ODI

The third ODI between Afghanistan and Ireland on Tuesday was halted for a brief moment as the players of the Asian team broke their fast amid the ongoing holy month of Ramadan.

Afghanistan captain Hashmatullah Shahidi and veteran all-rounder Mohammad Nabi were seen having their ‘Iftar’ meal on the field to break their fast after the 40th over of their batting innings.

Their teammates meanwhile, offered their prayers and broke the fast inside the dressing room along with the support staff members.

Players from Afghanistan and Pakistan are often seen offering namaz on the field during international matches but this is one of the rare instances when cricketers have broken their fast on the field.

Muslims all around the world observe the holy month of Ramadan every year. It falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar where people observe a month of fasting (sawm), prayer (salah), and reflection about themselves. Well, this year the holy month of Ramzan started on March 12 after the sighting of the crescent moon.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims observe fast from dawn to dusk and do not eat or drink anything the entire day. They only eat during Sehri (pre-dawn meal) and Iftar (sunset meal), where devotees consume different types of food.
