Australian cricketer David Warner and New Zealand player Kane Williamson have observed their first Ramadan fast along with their teammates from Afghanistan, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman.
Rashid Khan took to Instagram to share a video revealing how Warner and Williamson had observed the Ramadan dast with him.
In the video, Khan could be seen asking Warner about his experience of fasting. To which Warner said, “Good, but I am very thirsty and very hungry today. My mouth is so dry.”
Khan, who is currently playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL under the captaincy of Warner, then shifted his attention to Williamson as he asked the same question to him. “Very good, thanks,” Williamson said.
Rashid Khan said facing the camera, “These two legends are having a fast today. It is a pleasure to have them at the table.”
Warner added, “Very difficult.”

Rashid Khan shared the video with a caption that read, “Aftari these two legends were fasting with us today.”
Earlier, Rashid Khan had shared a moving note stating this was his first Ramadan without his mother, who passed away in June last year. He had written, “It is my first #Ramadan to fast without my mum. She taught me a lot but not how to live without her. My mind still talks to her & my heart still looks for her but my soul knows she is at peace. She was precious to me than all the treasure in the world. Love you & miss you mum ❤️”

Ramadan is the Holy month for Muslims around the world when they observe fast from dawn to dusk as they refrain from eating or drinking anything.
