Whatmore to help Associates for WC
Dav Whatmore will assist Afghanistan, Ireland, Scotland and UAE in their preparations for the 2015 World Cup after joining the ICC High Performance Programme in an advisory role.
Whatmore, who has had coaching stints with Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan, will begin his new role during the ICC HPP Support Staff Forum that opens on 14th May in Scotland, where he will also meet the coaches from the four teams.
The appointment of Whatmore, whose crowning moment was leading Sri Lanka to World Cup glory in 1996, was welcomed by the four teams, as well as by the ICC Chief Executive David Richardson, who believed that Whatmore could provide much-needed expertise to the Associate countries.
