LAHORE  - Dav Whatmore will be confirmed as Pakistan's new coach in March, according to Intikhab Alam. Alam chaired a committee put together by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to find a new coach after Waqar Younis quit the role last year.
Mohsin Khan has been leading the Pakistan team since, with spectacular success, inflicting defeats on Sri Lanka and England at Test level. Mohsin will likely return to his previous role as a selector, allowing Sri Lankan Whatmore to take up his new position.
Alam told PakPassion.net: "Dav Whatmore will arrive in early March to sign his contract. I can't give you the exact date yet as that has not been verified, but everything is in place for him to take over with his first assignment being the Asia Cup in Bangladesh.
"Whatmore has a proven record and I feel that his appointment will be an exciting one for the Pakistan cricket team. The team under Misbah-ul-Haq's astute leadership have gelled and continued to show great signs of improvement over the last year or so. I feel that Whatmore will add more professionalism to an already improving team and will take this team to greater heights."
