Hashmatullah Shahidi is the new ODI and Test captain; T20I captaincy decision to be made soon
“The decision to remove Asghar Afghan from captaincy was taken based on an investigation conducted by ACB’s Investigative committee,” an ACB media release stated. “It concluded that some of Afghan’s decisions as the captain of the team resulted in Afghanistan’s loss to Zimbabwe in the first Test of the series between both sides in Abu Dhabi in March.”
The captaincy reshuffle comes at a crucial time, with the T20 World Cup just five months away. Afghanistan will also travel to Australia after the world event for their maiden Test in the country.
