Rashid Khan appointed Afghanistan T20I captain

Afghanistan Cricket Board on Thursday, 29 December appointed Rashid Khan as the new captain in T20Is. This will be Rashid’s second full stint as captain of the team. Mohammad Nabi stepped down from the role after Afghanistan crashed out of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.

Rashid has previously captained Afghanistan from September to November 2019, where he led the side to four wins out of seven, which included a noteworthy series win over then defending T20 Champions West Indies. He was once again appointed captain in the lead-up to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 but resigned a month prior to the marquee event.
