"ACB is the biggest sporting organization in Afghanistan and one of the 12 full members of the International Cricket Council (ICC). Fortunately, with the passage of time, the organization needed a comprehensive organizational structure to complement its growing stature in regional and world cricket. There were many steps taken in this regard which strengthened the board’s operational and administrative capacity," an ACB statement said.

"However, there was a need for a stronger auditing structure to ensure thorough transparency and control in the organization’s operational areas. Realizing this need, the internal audit department was established in 2019 to help ACB achieve its objectives by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the risk management, controlling and governance processes.

"... The department has so far been a successful addition to ACB’s structure as it has conducted periodic reviews of the organization’s main operational pillars including Internal Control, Operations, Financial, Compliance, Information systems and procurement reviews. The reviews have resulted in considerable changes in the structure of different administrative departments to increase their effectiveness and efficiency."
