Afghanistan’s long-serving coach, former Pakistan test bowler Kabir Khan, has resigned less than six months before his team take part in their first 50-over World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
“The job requires a lot of travelling and this has affected my family life a lot and I now have to give them proper time,” Kabir told Reuters.
“I was not enjoying my job and so I decided it was time to resign and the Afghanistan Cricket Board accepted my decision.”
