KARACHI, Nov 5 (APP): Inzamam ul-Haq, the former Pakistan
captain who had originally agreed to coach Afghanistan on a temporary
basis, is believed to have agreed to a new two-year deal period
following the team’s recent success in Zimbabwe, where they clinched
both the ODIs and T20Is-their first series win against a Test
playing nation.
“I spoke to Inzamam and he has accepted a two-year contract with
the Afghanistan team which will do them a lot of good,” Kabir Khan,
the former Afghanistan coach, was reported by cricinfo.com website.
“Inzamam is satisfied with what he saw in Zimbabwe and believes
that the Afghanistan team has good cricket talent and can move ahead.”
Dashing batsman Inzamam, who played 120 Tests and 388 ODIs in
a career that spanned over a decade and a half, was offered a similar
position by the Pakistan Cricket Board in 2013, which he declined,
