Afghanistan’s Gulbadin Naib made a controversial start to his captaincy stint after replacing Afghan Asghar. The decision to name him the captain was severely criticised by senior players and their stars Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan. The duo felt Afghan should not have been replaced at first place and let their thoughts known to the world through twitter.

Naib was appointed as captain during a crucial time during the World Cup. He led Afghanistan in 12 matches, out of which, they won two and lost 10, according to espncricinfo. He registered a win per cent of merely 16.66, and was severely criticised.

But it was not the end, after his fallout with the board, Naib threatened to name the players who underperformed during the World Cup 2019.

“My dear Afghans, the main reason why i went public is not because i have personal grudge against player or the board. I am going to reveal every persons identity involved in corruption and other misconducts and betrayals against our Nation cricket and its ppl,” Naib had tweeted.

Following the dismal show by Naib, their premier all-rounder Rashid Khan was named the captain across formats with Asghar Afghan being named his deputy.
