Report Indicates Serious Flaws in ACB Governance

Report Indicates  Serious Flaws in  ACB Governance

KABUL - The Integrity Watch in a new research released on Saturday said the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) New research by Integrity Watch lacks transparency, accountability, governance and corruption prevention measures despite the national team’s incredible success.
The report on the ACB governance highlights that the board’s appointment procedures for its members are questionable. In addition, the ACB has failed to provide necessary physical infrastructure for women to play the game in Afghanistan despite international aid.
The research conducted by Integrity Watch took several months and required intervention from the Access to Information Commission because the board was unwilling to provide essential information to the research team.
Sayed Ikram Afzali, Executive Director of Integrity Watch, stated, “The ACB is faced with multiple governance issues. First and foremost is the politicization of the appointments process of board members and the too frequent changes at executive level.”
