Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has hired the services of the former South African all-rounder Lance Klusener as their new head coach. The completion of Phil Simmons’ tenure moved the cricket board to invite applications for the vacant position. After scrutinizing 50 odd applications, Klusener got installed as the new mentor of the Afghan unit.
Before this job, Klusener worked in different capacities for Mumbai Indians, South Africa, Dolphins and Zimbabwe. Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ACB Lutfullah Stanikzai was delighted to have acquired the services of the 48-year old as he believes that his vast experience will help ameliorate the skills of their national team.
Moreover, Klusener himself sits excited and ready for this new role. The Durban born discussed Afghanistan’s fearless brand of cricket as he hoped to make them a strong unit of the cricketing world. The Level 4 certified coach who is confident to help Afghanistan achieve new heights of success will face West Indies in November as his first assignment.
