Rashid Khan’s coach is Jonathan Trott

Graham Thorpe became the head coach of Afghanistan cricket team four months ago. The former England batsman could not take responsibility due to illness.

But Thorpe can’t sit still. Afghanistan team will visit Ireland next month. Before that, someone will be needed in the role of head coach.
Afghanistan Cricket Board appointed new head coach in place of Thorpe. That coach is also a former England batsman. Rashid Khan has been handed over to former England cricketer Jonathan Trott of South African origin.
The 41-year-old Trott has been working with England’s batsmen on a short-term basis for two years. He will take over Rashid Khan’s duties with Afghanistan’s tour of Ireland next month.

Excited to coach Afghanistan, Trott is looking forward to officially taking over from Rashid, saying, “I am honored to coach one of the most exciting teams in international cricket.” I am thrilled. I can’t wait to work with a group of players who are capable of producing great results. They will make the people of Afghanistan proud.

Praising the Afghanistan players, Trott said, ‘I believe that Afghanistan is a team full of talent. There is a lot of talent here. They have produced players who are capable of playing their own style of cricket. Their passion for the game is unmatched.”

Afghanistan is currently ranked 10th in both the ICC ODI and T20 team rankings. They are aiming to move themselves further up the T20 rankings in the upcoming tour of Ireland. Rashid Khanra will play five T20Is on Ireland tour.
