Agency: Afghanistan Cricket Board has been appointed for Azizullah Fazil as the chairman of Afghanistan Cricket Board. This is the first time that the insurgent Taliban, which recently took power in Afghanistan, has changed its leadership on the cricket board.
Fazil had previously been the president of the Afghanistan Cricket Association for 11 months after September 2018. Fazil resigned after the team’s poor performance in the Cricket World Cup.
The Taliban representatives had earlier held discussions with officials of the Afghanistan Cricket Board. The board said the Afghan team led by Fazil would play a series against Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
