KABUL (Pajhwok): Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) Executive Director Hamid Shinwari says he has been removed from his position by the Taliban government.

Shinwari wrote on his Facebook account that he was removed on Monday by Anas Haqqani, younger brother of Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani.

He was assigned no explanation for his removal, alleged Shinwari, who said he was just informed that he would be replaced by Naseebullah Haqqani

Shinwari’s sacking comes days after Australia scrapped their one-off Test match against Afghanistan men’s team.

The long-awaited Test was scheduled to be played on November 27 in Hobart.
