Karachi: Moin KhanFormer Pakistan captain Moin Khan is likely to take over as the head coach of the national cricket team for a short period after Australian Dav Whatmore's contract ends in February. A reliable and well placed source in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) told PTI that while former coach Waqar Younis was a strong candidate to be appointed as head coach on a long term basis but it would be Moin who will be taking over as the coach for the Asia Cup and World Twenty20 in Bangladesh next year in February and March after Whatmore leaves.
