As the Taliban swept to power in Afghanistan, every facet of life witnessed a radical change, including sport. Amid the furore, the nation's cricket board revealed its T20 World Cup squad on Thursday. Leg-spinner Rashid was named as the captain while veteran wicket-keeper Mohammad Shahzad also found a place in the fold. However, moments later, in a stunning development, Rashid announced his decision of stepping down as the captain of the T20 side because he felt he had no say in the selection process despite being the leader of the team.
