The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has recently appointed spinner Rashid Khan as the new captain of the national side after the disappointing performance of the blue shirts in recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 under the leadership of Gulbadin Naib.
The young captain has come out in support of associate nations as he said that future world events must feature more teams so that the lower ranked nations could compete at the highest level and improve the competition in such events.
“That is something which makes the competition very interesting. All those teams come and if they start doing well against the big teams we have seen in the past that Associate members come and they can beat the full members too, like Ireland have beaten England. That happens,” he said about associate teams.
