Afghanistan looking for new head coach after Lance Klusener departure

Afghanistan will be searching for a new head coach after Lance Klusener left the role by mutual agreement.

The Afghanistan Cricket Board says the departure was the result of a mutual agreement after it decided not to extend the contract of the former South Africa all-rounder, who was appointed in September 2019 and guided the team to two wins from their five matches in the recent T20 World Cup.

Afghanistan won one out of three Tests and three of six one-day internationals under Klusener.

A statement read: "Afghanistan Cricket Board and the national cricket team have had the coaching services of Mr Lance Klusener for more than two years and will take away some exciting memories from his tenure.

"ACB thank him, appreciate his efforts with the national team and wish him all the very best in his coaching career ahead."
