His contract as the head coach of the Afghanistan national team has been terminated by Lance Klusener.
With his contract expiring on December 31, 2019, Klusener assumed the role in September 2019. In the just concluded T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman, Afghanistan played fairly well.
The Afghanistan Cricket Board’s decision not to extend Klusener’s contract was mutual. Lance Klusener, the head coach of Afghanistan’s men’s cricket team, and the ACB reached a mutual agreement not to extend his contract, according to a statement from the ACB.
“After two years of working together, both the Afghanistan Cricket Board and the country’s national cricket team will take away fantastic memories from Lance Klusener’s term as coach. ACB wishes him the best in his future coaching endeavours and thanks him for his contributions to the national squad.”
Also mentioned in the announcement is that Afghanistan would begin the process of recruiting Klusener’s successor immediately. They continued by saying that the ACB has begun its search for a new head coach and was eager to find “another viable alternative” to take over as Afghanistan’s coach for the upcoming tournaments in order to replace Lance Klusener.
As a whole, Afghanistan only won one Test match, three One-Day Internationals (ODIs), and nine Twenty20 matches under Klusener.
