Mohammad Nabi appointed member of Afghanistan Cricket Board
Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Nabi has been added in the Afghanistan Cricket Board set-up as one of the organisation's members.
The 35-year-old is the most experienced cricketer to represent Afghanistan, having turned out for the national side in 205 international games across formats.
He is currently plying his trade in the Caribbean Premier League for St Lucia Zouks, recently earning the man of the match prize in the clash against Barbados Tridents.
The decision to induct former skipper Nabi, an active international cricketer, within the workings of the board is considered to be a unique move and is the first such instance in Afghanistan cricket.
This quirky arrangement could potentially evoke the argument of a conflict of interest, though the ACB has not addressed the matter in detail.
Nabi retired from Test cricket last year, capping off his three-match career in the format with a memorable win over Bangladesh in Chattogram.
He has announced his availability for white-ball cricket and continues to be a popular T20 freelancer taking part in franchise-based competitions around the globe.
Nabi joins ACB chairman Farhan Yusefzai, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Zia-ul-Haq Amarkheil, Senator Gulalai Noor Safi, former Deputy for Cultural Affairs at the Administrative Office of the President Faraidoon Elham and business tycoon Abdul Rahman Alokoza as the nine board members in total.
