Mohammad Kabir Khan (Pashto: محمد کبير خان), born April 12, 1974 in Peshawar, is a Pakistani cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a left-arm medium-fast bowler.

A seam bowler with considerable pace, Khan first played on the Sri Lankan tour of 1994-95, and made sporadic one-day appearances for the next six years. However, he never established a long-term role in the side, having only participated in ten One Day International, finding it tough to break into a Pakistan side sporting both Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. This was despite a respectable bowling average of just over 25.

After retiring from First Class cricket last year, Kabir became Coach of his Habib Bank side and after gaining experience there, he served UAE National Cricket teame as the head coach. He still plays league cricket in the UK, currently for Stirling County Cricket Club in Scotland as the club's professional, and is a highly qualifed ECB Level 3 coach.

He is the current coach of Afghanistan and has guided them to One Day International status.

Playing career

A seam bowler with considerable pace, Khan first played on the Sri Lankan tour of 1994-95, and made sporadic one-day appearances for the next six years. However, he never established a long-term role in the side, having only participated in ten One Day International, finding it tough to break into a Pakistan side sporting both Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. This was despite a respectable bowling average of just over 25. Khan ended up playing 5 Test matches and 10 One Day Internationals for Pakistan.

He still plays league cricket in the United Kingdom, currently for Stirling County Cricket Club in Scotland as the club's professional.

Coaching career

After retiring from first-class cricket last in 2005, Kabir became the coach of the Habib Bank Limited cricket team side and after gaining experience there, he coached the United Arab Emirates national cricket team. Khan is a highly qualifed ECB Level 3 coach.

Khan was the coach of Afghanistan national cricket team and guided them from the 2008 ICC World Cricket League Division Five, thorough Division Four and Division Three to One Day International status during the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifier. Shortly after Afghanistan achieved ODI status, Khan dropped Hasti Gul for their first first-class match in the ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Zimbabwe XI. This led Gul's brother Karim Sadiq to quit the national setup, citing what he called "injustices" and "wrong policies", accusing national coach Kabir Khan of not acting in the best interest of the team.[1] Sadiq later returned to play for Afghanistan. He guided Afghanistan to victory in the 2010 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, which allowed them to historically qualify for the 2010 ICC World Twenty20; during the tournament Afghanistan lost both of their matches to India and South Africa.

On August 19, 2010, Khan quit as the Afghanistan coach, citing interference from officials in the Afghanistan Cricket Board during their tour to Scotland;[2] Khan left Afghanistan top of the Intercontinental Cup and ranked 13th in the world in one-day cricket.

On October 2, 2010, Khan took over as the coach of UAE.
