Johannesburg, Jan 22: Pakistan cricket authorities have reportedly begun the search for a new head coach after the two-year tenure of outgoing coach Dav Whatmore ended with a series-levelling victory over Sri Lanka.
Former Australian batsman Whatmore, who was hired in March 2012, had announced last month that he would not renew his contract after being criticised by former greats and interim chairman Najam Sethi.
According to Sport24, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement that they have invited applications for the positions of head coach, batting coach and fielding coach for the national team.
The PCB further said that a committee including former stars Wasim Akram, Javed Miandad and Intikhab Alam would evaluate the applicants, with the decision to be finalised before the upcoming Asia Cup in Bangladesh.
During Whatmore’s tenure Pakistan failed to win a Test series, losing to South Africa 3-0 in 2013 and Sri Lanka 1-0 in 2012, and drawing with Zimbabwe and South Africa 1-1 also in 2013, the report added. (ANI)
