Former Australian Test player Dav Whatmore has been appointed head coach of the Pakistan national team.

The 57 year old had previously coached Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, in a career where he has become very familiar in coaching in the sub-continent. Whatmore played seven Test matches for Australia in 1979.

Pakistan in recent times have been much improved and were rewarded with a 3-0 series whitewash against England in last month’s Test series in the UAE. There were suggestions that Moshin Khan, who had been in charge of the side on a temporary basis would have been offered the role full time.

Whatmore has signed a two year deal with the Pakistan Cricket Board who have also announced that Julian Fountain has been appointed as the new fielding coach.

Pakistan currently sit fifth in the Test rankings and sixth in the world in ODI cricket.
