Hamid Shinwari posted on his official Facebook page on Monday that he had been fired by Anas Haqqani, the younger brother of the new Taliban Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani. He said he was not given a reason for his dismissal, but was told he would be replaced by Naseebullah Haqqani.
According to the Washington Post, it is not clear whether the new head of the Afghanistan Cricket Board is a relative of Sirajuddin Haqqani, but he is from the Zadran tribe. Anas Haqqani, a key Taliban leader, is said to be behind the deployment. Anas Haqqani, who met with the cricket team shortly after his arrival in Kabul and assured him of continuing the game, said Naseeb Zadran was the best choice for the Afghan cricket board at the moment. “His appointment as CEO of the Afghan Cricket Board will be useful for Afghanistan in the upcoming World Cup.”
Allowing the Afghan national cricket team to play, he said there was no problem with cricket and he would not interfere in the affairs of the men’s cricket team. Not much is known about Naseebullah, but journalists say he has long been associated with the Haqqani Network. He had previously expressed a desire to write a book on the late Haqqani Network founder Jalaluddin Haqqani. Hamid Shinwari is said to be unhappy with the Taliban’s decision.
Naseeb Zadran has apparently closed his old Twitter account after his appointment. He is said to have used it to promote the activities of the Haqqani Network. He had more than 25,000 followers on Twitter and he had four hundred and fifty followers.
Naseeb Khan, the new CEO of the Afghanistan Board, said at a ceremony in his office that he was happy to be introduced and trusted as the CEO of a proud organization. “I have always loved cricket and it is cricket that has always made Afghans happy,” he added.
