Rashid Khan named Afghan captain across all formatsKabul, July 12 (IANS) Rashid Khan was on Friday named the captain of the Afghanistan cricket team in across all formats, the cricket board confirmed.

Asghar Afghan, who was sacked as captain ahead of the World Cup, will be Rashid’s deputy. Asghar was removed from captaincy ahead of the World Cup and replaced by Gulbadin Naib (ODIs), Rashid (T20Is) and Rahmat Shah (Tests).

However, after Afghanistan’s dismal campaign in the World Cup in England and Wales, losing all their nine games to finish at the bottom of the table, the board decided to hand the baton to Rashid, who is the face of the sport in the country.

Rashid will now lead the team in a one-off Test against Bangladesh in September, a tri-series involving Bangladesh and Zimbabwe before a full home series (to be played in India) against West Indies that will include three T20Is, three ODIs and a one-off Test between November 5 and December 1.
