Dav Whatmore was named as Nepal's new head coach on Thursday (December 17).

Whatmore's appointment has come in the backdrop of Nepal seeking qualification to the 2022 T20 World Cup to be hosted by Australia after the Asian nation failed to make it to the 2021 T20 World Cup to be held in India.

The experienced campaigner has already coached national sides like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Zimbabwe. Incidentally, the position of Nepal's head coach has remained vacant since Umesh Patwal stepped down in February this year.

"Dave [sic] is extremely keen to take on this new challenge, as he strongly believes Nepal has great talent and a very bright future in international cricket," said a press release by the Nepal Cricket Association. "Nepal is a beautiful country and Dave is looking forward to this new challenge with young talent in Nepal."

Whatmore coached Sri Lanka to their maiden 50-over World Cup triumph in 1996 and steered Bangladesh to the Super Eights of the 2007 50-over World Cup. He has also served as the coach of Kolkata Knight Riders for two seasons and helped Kerala reach their maiden Ranji Trophy semifinal in 2018-19.
