Unlike Klusener, who will see out his contract, Tait has stepped down with immediate effect
Only a day after Lance Klusener announced his decision to not extend his Afghanistan coaching contract, Shaun Tait on Wednesday quit as the team's fast-bowling consultant “with immediate effect”.
Klusener announced his decision to step down on Monday but will see out his contract, that runs until the end of the calendar year.
“I have enjoyed my time working with the team especially with the young Afghan fast bowlers whom I personally think have a great future. Having access to a great cricketing mind like Lance Klusener (head coach of Afghanistan during my tenure) has been an absolute pleasure,” Tait said in a statement.
The former Australia quick – now a Level 2 certified coach from Cricket Australia – was contracted on a five-month period by Afghanistan Cricket Board in August. Tait had also signed a deal with Indian domestic side Puducherry as their bowling coach, shortly afterwards.
