Whatmore to supervise Pakistan’s Asia Cup camp

The new national cricket coach Dav Whatmore and fielding coach will reach Pakistan in the first week of March and supervise the short training camp of the national team ahead of the Asia Cup.
Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Zaka Ashraf said that the committee constituted to shortlist the chief coach for the national team recommended the name of Dav Whatmore.
The committee comprising Intikhab Alam, Zaheer Abbas and Naushad Ali and Rameez Raja named Whatmore as the new coach, he added.
“We want to take the team to new heights in world cricket and for that we want the best coach available. Our focus is set on 2015 World Cup and for that we would made every resource available for the team,” he maintained.
On players reservations on the appointment of Whatmore, the PCB chairman said: “We will do what is in the interest of Pakistan cricket and what is good for us.”
Responding to a question about change of coach despite Pakistan’s winning combination, he said he had not taken the final decision on the appointment of the coach.
“The committee has taken the decision. Not me. We are yet to take the final decision,” he added.
The PCB chairman said everyone including players, coach, manager and even Aaqib Javed contributed in the victories. “Credit of success should go to all,” he added.
An official of the PCB said that the board wants Aaqib Javed in the support staff of the coaching team and would try to retain him with the team. Reports said that Aaqib has resigned as bowling coach for the Pakistan team and is to join the UAE cricket.
