"Following recommendations by ACB chairman Farhan Yusefzai, and subsequently approved by Patron in-chief, Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, four new board members were introduced today to the Afghanistan Cricket Board replacing four former members," ACB said in a statement on Thursday.

The other three board members are Hasina Safi, Rohullah Khanzada and Haroon Mir. "The members who were replaced include Minister for Urban Development and Land Mohammad Jawad Paikar; former Deputy Minister of Industries and Commerce Kamela Siddiqui, former Minister for Transport Hamid Tahmasi and former Afghan Ambassador to Islamabad Shukrullah Atif Mashal," ACB statement added.

Nabi, after playing three Tests for Afghanistan, retired from the longest format of the game in September last year after the one-off Test against Bangladesh. He has also played 124 ODIs and 78 T20Is. In the Indian Premier League (IPL), he plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Earlier, the ACB sacked Chief Executive Officer Lutfullah Stanikzai for mismanagement, unsatisfactory performance and misbehaviour with the board managers. The board said in a statement that an official termination notice was issued on Monday after Farhan Yousefzai, the Chairman of the ACB, took serious notice of the misconducts. Stanikzai has to hand over all board related documents and equipment to the board by July 29.
