Afghanistan’s head coach, Jonathan Trott, is on the brink of sealing a one-year extension with the national team, a reward for the side’s stellar performances during the ODI World Cup 2023. The former England cricketer has been instrumental in propelling Afghanistan to remarkable heights since taking the reins in July 2022.
Expressing contentment with the contract details, Trott emphasized the importance of finalizing the coaching staff before committing to the extension. “I’m sure I’ll sign it but it’s making sure I get what’s right for the team… it’s about making sure we have the right coaches in place to take the team forward,” he stated, highlighting the significance of a cohesive coaching setup.

Trott’s aspirations extend beyond personal success; he aims to leave a lasting impact on Afghanistan cricket. “I’m trying to put things in place… to make sure that when I leave something I’m leaving it better than how I found it,” he affirmed, underscoring his commitment to setting high standards for his successor.
“We’re making sure we can win as many games as we can, not for us but to make sure we set the standard for the next coach or the next Afghan side,” Trott added, emphasizing the team’s collective pursuit of excellence.
With Trott’s current deal set to expire by the end of 2023, the imminent extension will see him spearheading the team’s campaigns in the upcoming T20 World Cup in the USA and the West Indies. His continued stewardship promises continuity and stability for Afghanistan as they gear up for future cricketing challenges.
Trott’s tenure has been marked by a transformative period for Afghanistan cricket, witnessing historic victories and a surge in performance.
