Whatmore eyes World Cup after Pakistan flop
June 19, 2013

KARACHI: Pakistan coach Dav Whatmore said on Tuesday the team would be reviewed with an eye on building for the 2015 World Cup after their dismal showing at the Champions Trophy in England.

Abysmal batting led to Pakistan’s defeat in all three matches as they failed to post a single total above 170 runs.

Pakistan’s failure in the Champions Trophy has prompted calls from former players, media and fans to overhaul the system and ditch Whatmore and under-performing players.

Asked about the need to overhaul the team, Whatmore said he will give a report on the team’s performance. “The question of selection should be directed to the selectors but I will give my review, both verbal and written, perhaps (with) 2015 in mind,” Whatmore, 59, told reporters as he arrived back in Pakistan.

Whatmore accompanied Mohammad Irfan, Imran Farhat, Kamran Akmal, Wahab Riaz, Saeed Ajmal, Nasir Jamshed and Ehsan Adil while captain Misbah-ul Haq and vice captain Mohammad Hafeez will return next week.
