Whatmore searches for young blood in Pak cricket

His statement came after Whatmore along with fielding coach Julian Fountain spent most of his time this week at the Rawalpindi cricket stadium where the National Super Eights T20 championship is underway.
“They come to the stadium before the start of the first match and leave late night all the while watching the players in action and taking down notes,” a board official said.
The official added that Whatmore was expected to have a meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf after the tournament over plans to set up a conditioning and training camp for shortlisted players chosen from the National Super Eights event.
A board official also confirmed that they have got encouraging response for the position of bowling coach with the national team, which was advertised with a deadline of March 23.
“Mostly local coaches have applied but there are also some foreigners interested in the job,” he said.
The PCB advertised for a bowling coach after Aaqib Javed’s resignation from the position. The PCB chief has said that he was keen to appoint another professional coach, who can help Pakistan produce best bowlers.
