Karachi, Dec. 6 : Pakistan team manager Moin Khan has given thumbs down to a foreign coach for national team.

Minutes before he boarded the flight from Lahore to Dubai with Dav Whatmore, Khan said that he always favoured a local coach.

Whatmore, who is a former Australia Test cricketer, is part of the squad that is set to take on Sri Lanka for three Tests, five One-Day-Internationals and two Twenty20 series.

Khan said that players have a good understanding with a local coach and this can be useful in bringing improvement.

According to the report, It is already established that the home series against Sri Lanka will be the last series for Whatmore as the head coach

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) however had made it clear that the Australian will continue to work in the same capacity throughout the assignment, the report added.
