Whatmore set for Pakistan exit

Dav Whatmore’s tenure as head coach of Pakistan will end following the Asia Cup in late February after the PCB opted against offering him a new deal.

It means the forthcoming series against Whatmore’s native Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates will be his last in the post.

Whatmore was appointed as Pakistan coach in March 2012, winning two out of 10 Tests in charge to date.

The latest of those was an impressive seven-wicket triumph over South Africa in Abu Dhabi last month, although the tourists went on to square the two-match series.

Amid reports of a growing clamour to appoint a Pakistani coach as Whatmore’s successor, PCB interim management committee head Najam Sethi told Gulf News: “I won't deny that there is tremendous pressure to appoint a home-bred coach."
