Kolkata: Tipped to take over as Pakistan coach, Dav Whatmore on Sunday resigned from the post of chief coach of Kolkata Knight Riders citing his inability to continue in the job.
Whatmore, who replaced John Buchanan before the third edition of Indian Premier League, coached the team for two seasons. In the first season, they finished sixth but a revamped team under Gautam Gambhir reached the knock-outs during the last edition thereby qualifying for the Champions League.
In his parting statement, Whatmore said, "The team has progressed in the right direction... I wish the team continued success and look forward to them progressing to silverware in 2012. Many thanks to those who have supported and believed in me."
