Asghar Stanikzai new Captain

The Afghanistan Cricket team is going to be captained by Asghar Stanikzai from here on in.

Asghar has got the charge after the stepping down of the experienced all rounder Mohammad Nabi who had been at the helm for Afghanistan for the last couple of years.
Nabi captained Afghanistan in a lot of big tournaments including this year’s ICC Cricket World Cup.

The biggest achievement of Nabi’s captaincy was that he managed to guide Afghanistan to a win against a test playing nation Bangladesh in the Asia Cup 2014.

The reason because of which Nabi is believed to have resigned is his own deteriorating form.
