President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has appointed Farhan Yousuzai as the new chairman of the Cricket Board of Afghanistan.

The Office of the President, ARG Palace, in a statement said President Ghani has issued a decree regarding the appointment of Farhan Yousufzai as the new member of the Cricket Board of Afghanistan.

The statement further added that the President has also appointed Mr. Farhan as the new Chairman of the Cricket Board.

Azizullah Fazli was previously serving as the Chairman of the Cricket Board of Afghanistan.

President Ghani appointed Fazli as the chairman of the board by issuing a decree late in September last year.

Meanwhile, the ARG Palace has not disclosed further information regarding the appointment of the new chairman for the cricket board.

But the latest appointments including the appointment of the new CEO earlier this month follow a poor performance by the cricket team in ICC World Cup.
