Kathmandu, August 28
Dav Whatmore, the head coach of the Nepal national cricket team, has resigned from the position months earlier than his contract would expire.
Whatmore is currently in Oman with his team for a two-match ODI series with Papua New Guinea and another series with Oman and the US as a part of the 2019–2023 ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 tournament. Sources say he emailed his resignation to the Cricket Association of Nepal, citing he needed time for his family.
“He has resigned to be effective immediately after the Oman tour citing his personal reasons,” CAN says on its social media pages on late Friday evening.
Whatmore, a native of Australia, had the experience of coaching test-playing teams like Zimbabwe, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. He famously won the 1996 World Cup as coach of Sri Lanka. Recently, he had also coached the Singapore national team.
