Lahore: Former Pakistan captain and coach, Waqar Younis has backed the appointment of Australian Dav Whatmore as head coach of the national team.
"I think the appointment of Whatmore is a good decision by the Pakistan Cricket Board. He has done wonders previously and did really well with Sri Lanka in 1996. Whatmore understands our culture too, he has a Sri Lankan background of course. Yes I think he's a good appointment and I hope he will do really well," said Waqar.
He said the current group of Pakistani cricketers would be looking forward to working with Whatmore and putting in the required hard work.
