Afghanistan appoint Dean Jones as interim coach

Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones has been appointed as the interim head coach of the Afghanistan cricket team.

Former Australia batsman and cricket commentator Dean Jones will coach Afghanistan in their upcoming Hong Kong tour, officials said Tuesday, in the latest sign of the team's rising fortunes.

The 2017 season of the Shpageeza Cricket League organised by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) held in September has proven to be very fruitful for the country's cricket. "2207520000.1507641888./1966243280296927/?type=3&theater" target="_blank">announced in a statement.

"Both parties will consider a long-term agreement after the games", it added. Jones, to his credit, made a valiant attempt at a comeback by asking Waugh to concentrate on his "selection" duties with the Australian team.

According to ACB, Jones has played 52 test matches and 164 one day worldwide matches while playing for the Australian team.

"I am pleased to announce that I will be Afghanistan's interim head coach for their tour to Hong Kong", Jones tweeted.

Afghanistan is presently unbeaten, in second place with 81 points behind Ireland, who lead the table with 89 points from six games.
