Ajmal told the TV sports channel Geo Super late Tuesday that former Pakistan internationals Waqar Younis and Mohsin Khan had handled the players very well during their coaching stints, while Whatmore — an ex-Australia test batsman who has previously coached the Sri Lanka and Bangladesh national teams — "doesn't have knowhow of our language."
