ACB wants Nabi to focus on the upcoming international assignments.

Afghanistan Cricket Board on Monday (June 21) relieved senior cricketer Mohammad Nabi from the duties of board director in order to concentrate on the upcoming international assignments.

ACB announced that Farid Mamundzay, Afghanistan's current ambassador to New Delhi, has replaced Nabi as the member of the board.

''The decision to relieve senior player Mohammad Nabi from his duties as a Board member was taken considering Afghanistan's upcoming important and busy international calender where he will play a vital role as the senior-most all-rounder for the national team,'' said ACB in a statement.

It is understood that ACB decided to appoint Mamundzay as a board member as it will help strengthen its bilateral relations in India where the Afghans play their home matches.

Mamundzay is a well-educated and qualified diplomat having served earlier at various high-profile and reputable designations. His portfolio includes appointments such as Political advisor to the National security Council, Advisor to Ministry of Finance in Private sector development, Political affairs advisor to the Ministry of foreign affairs, Finance and Operations Advisor to the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock and as Deputy Minister of Technical & Policy affairs in the Independent Directorate for Local Governance (IDLG).

Mr. Mamundzay's academic qualifications include a Masters in International Accounting and Finance. He has also served as a professor in American University of Afghanistan.
