Former Pakistan captain and wicketkeeper Rashid Latif has taken over as the coach of the Afghanistan national team.

Latif resigned from his job as the wicketkeeping coach at the Pakistan National Cricket Academy on Tuesday and announced that he had taken up the new role.

"This is to inform you all that after having discussions with the Afghan cricket authorities I have accepted their offer to become the head coach of the team," Latif said in a statement. Latif, who was until last month Afghanistan's batting coach, is taking over from fellow Pakistani Kabir Khan, who was coach until last month's tour of Scotland.

The former Pakistan wicketkeeper informed that he would be joining the Afghanistan team in Sharjah in September to help in their preparation for the ICC Intercontinental Cup game against Kenya.
