Gulbadin Naib blasts at black sheep of Afghanistan Cricket

Afghanistan’s captaincy framework has recently attracted a lot of debate as it looked like a game of musical chairs. It all started when middle-order batsman Asghar Afghan was removed from captaincy ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament.

Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB), back then, appointed all-rounder Gulbadin Naib and under his captaincy, Afghan unit came last in the 50-over competition, losing all their 9 games of the event. 

After that, spinner Rashid Khan was given the throne, who led the country in few games before witnessing the reinstallation of Asghar Afghan as the national skipper.

Gulbadin Naib, the skillful all-rounder, sits angry and dissatisfied about the proceedings as he said that few players underperformed in his captaincy. 

In a series of tweets, the 28-year old said that there are people in Afghan cricket who are involved in corruption and betraying the nation, having connections with the government officials.

He added that he was promised that the mess will be fixed, but Gulbadin failed to locate any improvement. Giving an ultimatum, the Logar born further revealed that he is ready to name and shame all the involved people if no action is taken against them. It remains to be seen how the cricket board responds to Gulbadin.
