Mohammad Nabi is no more the Afghanistan captain as he has resigned from his post citing poor form and team’s performance. Nabi has successfully captained the Afghan team for two years. Under his tenure, Afghanistan qualified for their first ever World Cup and registered their first win in the World Cup when they defeated Scotland by 1 wicket. On a personal note, Nabi failed miserably as he managed to score only 90 runs from 6 innings.
I have served Afghanistan’s national team as captain for more than two years. I tried my best to bring victories to our team and the nation. Given the recent performance of the team and particularly my out of form status, I would like you to accept my resignation as captain and allow me to continue to play as a team player. We performed very well in the World Cup. For the first time in the history of Afghanistan cricket we won a game. I will continue to play with the team and advise the new captain, Nabi told skysports.com.
Pacer Hamid Hassan, batsman Agshar Stanikzai and Samiullah Shenwari are the possible candidates to replace Nabi as the captain of the National side. Nabi will still continue to play for his country under the new captain and will give some valuable advice whenever the new skipper needs.
