Mohammad Shahzad has been ordered by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) to live in the Asian country or risk losing his national contract.
The wicketkeeper/batsman currently resides in the Pakistan city of Peshawar, which is close to the Afghanistan border.
The ACB have given all national team players one month to relocate to Afghanistan.
ACB chairman Atif Mashal told ESPNcricinfo: “They [contracted players] are not allowed to travel to any country without permission.
“Those players who are living on foreign land are given a month to move back to Afghanistan with their families, otherwise the cricket board will terminate their contracts.
“Afghanistan Cricket Board has made a strict rule about player discipline and given them a one-month notice to adhere firmly with the policy.
“All players and employees should be based in Afghanistan and they are not allowed to play in any foreign country without ACB’s approval.”
