Afghanistan Cricket Board on Friday appointed Rashid Khan Arman as the National Cricket Team’s captain. By this decision, the Cricket Board has put an end to split captaincy.
This comes after Asghar Afghan, the former captain of the team was removed from the post on April 19 after the cricket board opted for split captaincy, with Gulbadin Naib for ODI, Rahmat Shah for the Test side, and Rashid Khan Arman for Twenty20 International matches.
Afghan’s removal from captaincy was faced criticism by a number of well-known players of the team, including Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi.
Critics say the performance of the National Team in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 was marred by differences over the captain of the team.
Correction: Early in the day, sources told TOLOnews that former captain Asghar Afghan took the charge of the team but later the ACB announced the appointment of Rashid Khan.
