Klusener to step down as Afghanistan head coach


Afghanistan head coach Lance Klusener will leave at the end of his contract next month by mutual agreement, the country’s cricket board (ACB) an-nounced on Tuesday.

The former South Africa all-rounder was ap-pointed in September 2019 and led Afghanistan at this year’s Twenty20 World Cup, where they won two of five matches in the group stages.

The ACB said that it had mutually decided with Klusener not to extend his contract, which is due to expire on Dec 31.

“The Afghanistan Cricket Board and the na-tional cricket team have had the coaching services of Mr. Lance Klusener for more than two years; shared and will take away some exciting memories from his tenure,” the ACB said in a statement.

Under Klusener, Afghanistan won one of their three Tests, three out of six ODIs and nine out of 14 T20 Internationals.
