Andy Moles appointed director of Afghanistan cricket

Former Warwickshire batsman Andy Moles has been announced as the new director of Afghanistan cricket. Being included in their system from some time presents him with an ideal opportunity to operate well and allow Afghanistan cricket to reach the next gear.

Moles served as Afghanistan’s coach from 2014 to 2015 and helped them make their maiden World Cup appearance. After that, he filled this position temporarily during the country’s Test win against Bangladesh in Chattogram as Phil Simmons resigned ahead of the tour of Bangladesh. 

In addition to that, the 58-year old has been working with the Under-19 and Under-23 teams to prepare youngsters for the senior team.

With former South African all-rounder Lance Klusener getting named as Afghanistan’s new head coach, Moles was removed from the coaching framework only to be handled different duties. The domestic veteran sits really excited with Afghan cricketing talent as he is jubilated to work with a country that entails the needed fighting spirit.
