    Default Pakistan coach to be named after Bangladesh tour

    The PCB coach hunt committee has decided on its choice for head coach and specialised coaches, but will make a formal announcement after the Bangladesh tour, with the incumbent in place for next January's series against England.

    Dav Whatmore is seen as the front-runner for the top job with Mohsin Khan, Aaqib Javed and Julien Fountain tipped to get the batting, bowling and fielding roles.

    Col Naushad Ali, a member of the committee and currently assistant manager of the national team, said the committee had made its decision. "The person we have picked as head coach is very well suited to Pakistan," Ali said. "He is the one who suits the temperament of Pakistan cricket and [that] of its team."

    Whatmore, currently coach of the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, was linked with the post on an earlier occasion, when the PCB eventually picked Geoff Lawson. This time, his name is believed to be favoured by the committee members - Ali, Intikhab Alam, Zaheer Abbas and Ramiz Raja (though the last-named has been out of loop while on tour as a commentator).

    When contacted by ESPNcricinfo, Whatmore refused to shed any light on the issue. "I can't say anything," he said. "I am in no position to say anything."

    The committee - which is believed to favour home-grown batting and bowling coaches, given Pakistan's traditional strengths in those disciplines - is yet to conduct a formal interview with any of the candidates, but is understood to have been in touch through mail and phone. It is believed the PCB had set up a meeting between Alam and Whatmore under the Ijaz Butt regime but it was cancelled following the change in administration.

    The appointment of a coach will fill a slot that's been lying vacant for the past five months, since Waqar Younis stepped down on health grounds. Mohsin Khan was named interim coach and it's understood he wants to continue in some coaching capacity rather than return to a selectorial role.

    "I think I have done fairly a good job," Khan told ESPNcricinfo last month. "I haven't applied for the coaching job but if they [the PCB] ask me to carry on, I'd love to do so."
