Kabul, Jul 12 (UNI) Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) on Friday appointed leg-spinne Rashid Khan as captain for all formats of the game replacing Gulbadin Naib while former skipper Asghar Afghan will serve as the Vice-captain.
Addressing the press conference which also featured CEO Lutfullah Stanikzai and Rashid Khan, Fazli said, ''The decision to appoint Rashid Khan as Captain across all three formats was taken after consulting Chief Selector Andy Moles and other board members.

Rashid Khan called his new role as the National Captain as a major responsibility on his shoulders and expressed hope that using his experience, he will be able to be successful in his new role for the National Team.
“There are no issues in the team, we all play as one team and play only for the country. Whatever I am today, is because of this country and this team,” Rashid said.
