Shinwari then added "We approached the Asian Cricket Council but they said they couldn't afford the demands being made by Rashid Latif. So now we are looking for another coach,"Acordding to ACB all those benefits would run up to 17000USD .
Rashid Latif, however, had a different story to tell, he said that he took the decision because too much interference was hindering his ability to perform the duties efficiently.
"Kabir also left his job because of the same reason. I was not free to impose my ideas on the team. From the team combination to the match strategy - the Afghanistan Cricket Board officials want to dictate everything," he said.
The former wicketkeeper-batsman who recently accompanied Afghanistan team to Scotland, said he was disappointed that despite giving a comprehensive plan to the Afghanistan cricket board for development of the game at the grassroot level that included establishment of academies and grounds, nothing had happened.
He also made it clear that he wanted the Afghan team to practice more in inside Afghanistan but the authorities had other ideas.
"Since I had a good training session with the Afghan cricketers in Jalalabad, I wanted more such sessions there and Kabul, but the authorities want to hold camps in Sharjah. With such attitude Afghan cricket would go nowhere," Latif said.
Former national team player Raees Ahmadzai, has raised similar concerns in his blog for CricketEurope. "We wanted to do something for Afghanistan and we worked our hardest to make it happen," he wrote.
"We had hoped that this was a legacy that Afghanistan's future cricket stars would embrace. We had built it with the hope we were starting a legacy, but unfortunately, the structures that need to be in place for grassroots cricket to really take off are still nowhere to be seen in Afghanistan.
"The investment in grassrooots cricket in Afghanistan still hasn't happened," he added. "We do not have any professional grounds, proper academies in Kabul, or a club cricket structure to put young Afghan cricket enthusiasts through. With the ICC pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into the ACB, plus the investment from the US embassy in Kabul, $350,000 from Etisalat and $200,000 from Supreme Group, we should be in a much more advanced position."
Raees went on to express his sadness that Afghanistan still had not played any one-day internationals against Test nations despite gaining ODI status more than 18 months ago and lamented the fact that "the incentive for the youth to play is slowly diminishing."
"When I look at our current structure, I feel that the future of Afghan cricket is not bright. There must be plans to help encourage the youth of Afghanistan to participate in cricket. There must be structures for them to participate in. Our focus should be on the World Cup 2015, otherwise we will end up like Kenya. I remember when Kenya was a force to be reckoned with, and beat the West Indies in the World Cup. Kenya had actually made it to the semi-finals of the World Cup. Now Kenya struggles against Afghanistan , Scotland, Canada and Ireland. Their lack of planning for the future should be a lesson for Afghanistan. We don't want to take steps backwards after all the achievements that Afghan cricket has made."
