Dav Whatmore takes charge as Baroda's Director of Cricket

Dav Whatmore has taken on another role in India's domestic circuit after being appointed as Baroda Cricket Association's new Director of Cricket.

The former Australian cricketer, who coached Sri Lanka to their historic 1996 World Cup win, previously served as Kerala's head coach across a three-year stint.

His tenure reaped rewards in the 2017/18 season of the Ranji Trophy when Kerala made it to the quarter-finals for the first time.

This record was bettered in the subsequent year with Kerala reaching the top four. However, Kerala parted ways with Whatmore following a disastrous Ranji Trophy campaign in the 2019/20 season.

"Whatmore has been appointed as coach of the Ranji trophy team and also the Director of Cricket for a period of two years," BCA secretary Ajit Lele told PTI.

As part of his duties with Baroda, Whatmore has been handed the responsibility of working with local coaches at the Under-16, Under-19 and Under-23 levels.

The 66-year-old Victorian has remained as the head coach for Pakistan, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in the past apart from Sri Lanka. Moreover, he was the Kolkata Knight Riders head coach for two editions of the Indian Premier League.
