Afghanistan Cricket Board appoints Ahmad Shah Sulimankhil as interim chief selector

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has appointed former national player Ahmad Shah Sulimankhil as the interim chief selector for the national cricket team.

In a statement, the ACB noted Sulimankhil’s extensive experience with the board, including roles as Chief Selector in 2011, Domestic Cricket Manager in 2013, a member of the Selection Committee from 2017 to 2019, and International Performance Coordinator in 2023.

The appointment follows Afghanistan’s strong performance in last year’s World Cricket Cup. However, the under-19 team faced criticism for its performance in the U19 World Cup.
