A cesspool of water has been drained since Asghar Afghan was suddenly sacked from Afghanistan’s national team captaincy in all formats of the game.
Just around two months radius of the mega ICC event, Afghanistan brought the changes in the leadership. Gulbadin Naib is the one to lead the country in the World Cup 2019 while Rashid Khan and Rahmat Shah is handed over T20I and Test captaincy respectively.
Afghan, 31, led the team in their first ever World Cup appearance in 2015 and also earned their first win over Scotland in the tournament.
Afghan cricketers critically responded to the board’s decision supporting Asghar who led the country in 56 ODIs, 46 T20 internationals and their first two Test matches.
On Tuesday, he came to meet with the Afghanistan Cricket Board chairman Azizullah Fazli for the first time after being outcast. The meeting apparently ended with happy notes as Afghanistan Cricket Board’s Twitter handle announced that the former captain is all set to join with the national team’s training camp in South Africa. “ACB Chairman @AzizullahFazli met former captain Asghar Afghan as both discussed the recent changes in team leadership. Afghan remarked that he will continue to strive for the team’s success and pride of the country. He will soon join the national training camp in South Africa.”
