Dubai: After the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban, cricket is in crisis. Minutes after the announcement of the Afghan squad for the T20 World Cup, captain Rashid Khan resigned. Rashid Khan resigned after allegations that the selection committee of the Afghanistan Cricket Board did not consult on the team’s selection.

The names of the team members were posted yesterday on the official Twitter account of the Afghanistan Cricket Board. Following this, Rashid Khan announced his resignation on Twitter. All-rounder Mohammed Nabi is expected to be Afghanistan’s new captain. Hours earlier, head coach Azadullah Khan resigned, citing the involvement of non-cricketers.

The current controversy stems from the unexpected arrival of some players to the Afghan squad for the T20 World Cup. Mohammad Shahzad, who was suspended in 2019, has returned to the team. Pacers Shapoor Sadran and Daulat Sadran were also selected. Shapoor last played for the national team in 2020. Hamid Hasan, who has been out for a long time due to injury, has also been included in the squad.

Afghanistan has named 18 players to its squad for the World Cup, including two reserve players. However, a 15-member squad can only declare under ICC rules. The rest will be considered as a reserve. Therefore, there are indications that the Afghan team may still be weak. The last time Afghanistan played a T20 match was in March 2021 against Zimbabwe. At the time, the team was led by Asghar Afghan.
