Farhan Yusefzai, chairman of the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB), on Monday fired Lutfullah Stanikzai, the CEO of ACB.
In a termination letter addressed to Stanikzai that went viral on social media, ACB chairman Farhan Yusefzai said Stanikzai’s contract was being terminated for “mismanagement”, “unsatisfactory performance,” and “misbehavior with managers.”
“This is to inform you that this letter serves as confirmation that your employment contract in the capacity of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Afghanistan Cricket Board is terminated effectively. Your last employment date with ACB is July 29, 2020,” the letter said.
According to reports, Stanikzai was dismissed two years before his contract expires.
Stanikzai had replaced Asadullah Khan, who had been charged with breaching the ACB constitution and policies on various decisions.
Stanikzai has been the CEO of the Afghanistan Cricket Board for a year.
