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.
