Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has been appointed as Afghanistan captain across all the three formats
Former skipper Asghar Afghan has been appointed as Rashid Khan’s deputy. Afghanistan cricket board had earlier appointed Gulbadin Naib as the captain of the team just before the World Cup.
However, the decision came back to hit Afghanistan in the ODI showpiece as Naib inexperience of leading the side was palpable.
Rahmat Shah was appointed as Afghanistan’s Test captain before the World Cup. Furthermore, Rashid Khan was given the captaincy reins of the T20I format. However, by this new decision, the board has put paid to split captaincy.
