Former Bermuda captain David Hemp has been named as the new coach of the Pakistan women's national team. Hemp takes over from Iqbal Imam who in turn had succeeded Mark Coles.

Hemp, 49 and based in Australia, played 22 ODIs for Bermuda along with 271 first-class games for Glamorgan, Free State and Warwickshire. He is also a qualified UK level four coach and has previously coached the Melbourne Stars' and Victorian women's cricket teams at the Women's Big Bash League between 2015 and 2020.

"David has worked for five years in Australia with the Melbourne and Victoria women's sides and he is a perfect fit for the role we were looking for as he will be able to use that experience and knowledge to translate into our system that will ultimately benefit Pakistan women's cricket," aid Urooj Mumtaz, Acting Head of Pakistan Women's Wing and Chair of women's selection committees.

"I am sure our players will make optimum use of David's expertise and strict work ethics, while I am sure David will have an enjoyable time when he relocates to Pakistan to join the elite company of illustrious coaching staff of Atiq-uz-Zaman, Grant Bradburn, Mohammad Yousuf, Mohammad Zahid and Saqlain Mushtaq at our National High Performance Centre."

Hemp was hired from among 38 applicants, including 18 foreign coaches from various Test playing countries. The final interviews were carried by Wasim Khan (PCB Chief Executive), Urooj Mumtaz and Grant Bradburn (Head of International Coach Development) last week.
