Afghanistan on the lookout for coaches post Klusener's exit

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) is looking to hire coaches following the exit of Lance Klusener and Shaun Tait from the national team. The two coaches left the Afghanistan side after the Twenty20 World Cup in UAE in October-November.

An ACB official confirmed that the contracts of Klusener and Tait were only up to December and the board is on the lookout for international coaches for the national team, which left for Qatar on Monday (January 3) to play the Netherlands in a three-match One-Day International series.

For now, former international Nawroz Mangal (49 ODIs, 32 T20Is) has taken charge of the team that is being led by Hashmatullah Shahidi. The side will play three matches in Doha on January 21, 23 and 25. The other members of the coaching staff are Javed Noori, Mujahid Zadran and Qiam kakar who are all Afghan national coaches. “We are in talks with International/other coaches to hire them for the national team,” an ACB official told Media.
