Born in Colombo, Davenell (Dav) Whatmore represented Australia as a middle-order batsman in seven Test matches and a solitary ODI, making a top score of 77 against India in New Delhi. He was more successful at First-Class level, scoring over 6000 runs for Victoria in 108 matches at an average of almost 34. He retired from professional cricket in 1989 to pursue a career in coaching.

During his distinguished career as a coach, Whatmore coached Sri Lanka on two separate occasions, with his most memorable association with the Lankans coming during their incredible World Cup win in 1996. In addition, he won the County Championship with Lancashire in 1998 and 1999, as well as the Natwest Trophy in 1998. In 2003, he took on the challenge of coaching Bangladesh and was in charge when they won their first ever series by defeating Zimbabwe. He also oversaw the ODI victories over Australia, South Africa and the famous win over India in the 2007 World Cup. Between 2009 and 2012, Whatmore was also coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.

In March 2012, the Pakistan Cricket Board appointed Whatmore as Head Coach of the Pakistan side, replacing interim coach Mohsin Khan. Whatmore's tenure in this position saw Pakistan winning the Asia Cup and they were also successful in ODI series wins away from home versus India and South Africa. Failure to win the Champions Trophy in England as well as disappointing performances in the Test match series against South Africa were low points in his tenure, but he departed with his head held high after a sensational series-leveling Test win against Sri Lanka in Sharjah where Pakistan chased down over 300 on the final day.

In an exclusive interview with, Whatmore discussed the highs and lows of his tenure as Pakistan coach, his relationship with Misbah-Ul-Haq, Mohammad Irfan's injury problems and his observations about standard of domestic cricket in Pakistan.
