Pak players not consulted over Whatmore’s appointment

Post  Admin on Mon Jan 16, 2012 1:48 pm

Dav Whatmore’s first assignment with the Pakistan team will be the Asia Cup (March 12-22) in Bangladesh. Whatmore, who was taken for a dinner by the former coach, Intikhab Alam on Saturday night, is all set to meet the PCB chief, Zaka Ashraf, CEO (Shubhan Ahmed) and a few other PCB officials individually on Monday morning at the Gadaffi Stadium but an understanding between him and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been reached and no statement from either party will be issued before the end of the series against England in UAE, it is learnt here.
Interestingly, no Pakistan captain or players have been “consulted” about former Sri Lanka and Bangladeshi coach’s possible appointment.
“The contract copy has been kept ready, though Whatmore was yet to see the draft of it”, the source further added.
“Whatmore has been staying at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and had not expressed any security concern or even discussed safety issues with Alam”, the source close to the PCB said.
Whatmore will be leaving for Australia on Tuesday morning. His daughter, Alexandra, when approached in Melbourne, refused to reveal anything before the appointment is announced.
The PCB has already finliased Julian Fountation as their coach. He is unlikely to go to Pakistan for any interviews. The appointments have been finalised by Intikhab Alam, Zaheer Abbas and Col. Naushad Ali. Owing to his media and commentary commitments, Rameez Raza didn’t attend the meetings, but his consent was sought.
