Sediki Group is the official sponsorer for the Afghan Cricket team.
A social media post is viral claiming that Afghanistan cricket captain Mohammad Nabi is bearing the entire team's expenditure because the Taliban refused to sponsor the team for the ongoing ICC T20 world cup. We found this claim to be false.
The Afghan Cricket team is sponsored by Sediki Group, a reputable domestic and foreign trade company. The group had secured the team's sponsorship rights by paying the highest bid price of $450,000. Further, a news report said that the Taliban supported the cricket team and had pledged to address the players' concerns.
We mark the claim as false as the Afghan Cricket team does have a sponsor, and the Taliban is backing the cricket team.
