Graham Thorpe has been named as Afghanistan's head coach and will take over the duty from Stuart Law, who was acting as the interim coach. Afghanistan Cricket Board appointed Law after Lance Klusener decided against renewing his contract which ended on December 31.

Klusener held the position for over two years after the 2019 World Cup. Thorpe, who featured in 100 Tests and 82 ODIs, stepped down as England's batting coach after a horror Ashes series in Australia. Afghanistan are set to tour Ireland for one Test, three ODIs and three T20Is in July which will be Thorpe's first assignment with the team.
