PCB doesn’t plan to retain Dav Whatmore beyond next year

Pakistan will have a fresh head coach for the Asia Cup and the ICC World T20 Championships in Bangladesh next year as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has no intentions of renewing Australian Dav Whatmore’s two-year deal when it ends in March, 2014.

“At the moment the present PCB management has decided to stay with Whatmore and allow him to complete his two-year contract. Basically, the PCB does not want to pay any extra money/compensation to Whatmore which it will have to do if it terminates his contract before March, 2014,” the source said.

“With back-to-back full series against South Africa and Sri Lanka coming up in the UAE the PCB also does not feel it is the right time to make changes in the team’s coaching staff,” the source also said.

But he confirmed that the PCB was far from pleased with the results produced so far by Whatmore since he took over in March, 2012 and also over many other matters. But he confirmed that the PCB wasn’t satisfied with Whatmore and had brought in a former Test skipper Moin Khan as manager for the Zimbabwe tour to balance things in the team management.
