Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has resigned as Afghanistan's coach after falling out with the country's Cricket Board and some players.
"I can only say that I had sent in my resignation as coach of the Afghanistan team and their Chairman of the board has accepted my resignation," Rashid said.
He confirmed that his contract with the Afghanistan board was valid until end of July but he opted out as the Afghan officials and some players were not happy with his coaching style. "So, I have decided to part ways with them but I wish them the best of luck in their future matches," Rashid, a former wicketkeeper-batsman, said.
Rashid is due to leave for London this week to take up a contract with the Lashings Cricket Club.
Afghanistan cricket officials have accused Rashid of backing out of his contract which they said ran until July. "Basically Rashid resigned because he was not getting along with the Afghanistan cricket officials and some players who had made it clear they wanted a new coach.
