Dav Whatmore quits as KKR coach
Dav Whatmore resigned as head coach of Indian Premier League franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
He is the front runner to become Pakistan's next coach.
PCB officials have invited the Australian to Pakistan to discuss his appointment in the second week of January.
Venky Mysore, chief executive of KKR, has lent his support to Whatmore's desire.
"We have been most supportive of Dav's keen interest in pursuing an international coaching role," he said.
