Dave Whatmore will be the new coach of Kerela

Dav Whatmore has signed a six-month deal as head coach of Kerala.

He will start mid-September and will likely see out the entire 2017-18 domestic season.

On his appointment, Whatmore said,



I'm focused on the development side of the game, but it so happened that I could combine that along with coaching an upcoming state side, which I found challenging. That explains my association with Kerala.


Kerala had a poor 2016-17 Ranji Trophy campaign in which they managed just one win in nine matches. 

Their poor form extended across formats - they finished fourth in the South Zone Inter-State T20s and failed to advance to the knockout stage of the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Whatmore has previously coached four national sides- Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and more recently, Zimbabwe.
