Hamid Shinwari sacked as Afghanistan Cricket Board chief executive

Hamid Shinwari sacked as Afghanistan Cricket Board chief executive

Hamid Shinwari, on Monday (September 20) was sacked as the chief executive officer of the Afghanistan Cricket Board.

On Monday, a group of people entered the ACB office and ordered that the CEO be replaced. A new CEO, Naseebullah Khan, has been appointed in Shinwari's place.

"Yesterday I was fired," Shinwari told Cricbuzz on Tuesday (September 21). It is learnt that a group of people belonging to the Haqqani network, a partner in the Afghanistan government, is behind the move.

Shinwari had been the international administrative face of the ACB since the violent takeover of the country's government by the Taliban last month. He had made an impassioned plea to the world cricket community after Australia decided not to host Afghanistan in a Test because of the country's treatment of women in public life and in the sporting arena.

The ACB, meanwhile, continues to be headed by Azizullah Fazli, who took over as chairman of the board immediately after the change of government.

Afghanistan cricket has been witnessing changes on the field too. Rashid Khan, arguably the biggest star from the country, resigned protesting the selection of the national team for next month's Twenty20 World Cup. Mohammad Nabi was appointed captain later amid allegations that chairman Fazli had interfered in the selection of some veterans, who are believed to be past their prime.
