Islamabad, Aug 12 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board has no intentions of renewing Dav Whatmore's two-year contract when it expires in March 2014 and will have a new head coach for the Asia Cup and the ICC World Twenty20 Championships in Bangladesh next year.

According to The Daily Times, a source in the board revealed that at the moment the PCB management had decided to stay with Whatmore and allow him to complete his two-year contract because it did not want to pay any extra money or compensation to him.

The source said that with back to back full series against South Africa and Sri Lanka coming up in the UAE, the PCB does not feel it it's the right time to make changes in the team's coaching staff.

Interestingly, Whatmore recently preferred to move out of the National Cricket Academy living area to a new residence in Gulberg in Lahore the rent for which is being paid by the PCB, the report said.
