Rashid to captain Afghanistan across formats, Asghar appointed his deputy

Rashid Khan has been named Afghanistan’s captain across all formats, while former captain Asghar Afghan has been appointed his deputy.

In April, Rashid was made T20I captain with Rahmat Shah and Gulbadin Naib taking the charge of Test and ODI sides respectively. ESPNcricinfo understands Rashid was offered the ODI captaincy as well before the World Cup, but had declined the offer then.

Afghanistan lost all their matches at the World Cup under Naib’s leadership, with his decisions on the field during a thriller against Pakistan in particular, coming under the scanner.
