Pakistan interviewed Richard Done, the former New South Wales fast bowler and ICC high performance manager, for the position of coach, a post they hope to fill in before the team tours Scotland in July. Done, 51, is one of three Australians on Pakistan's shortlist, along with Dav Whatmore and Geoff Lawson.
"Done has been interviewed and in the final phase Whatmore and Lawson will be interviewed before making the final announcement shortly," Nasim Ashraf, the PCB chairman, said.
Done, who succeeded Bob Woolmer as the ICC's high performance manager in 2004 after Woolmer was named Pakistan's coach, previously visited Pakistan in 2001 on a coaching assignment with the National Academy in Lahore. His main focus on that visit was to give guidance on coach training and suggestions on Academy work.
Apart from his stint with the ICC, Done also worked with the Australian Academy and the Queensland Academy of Sport. He played ten first-class matches from 1978-79 to 1985-86 and took 21 wickets at 41.76. "Done has worked with Rodney Marsh in the highly praised Australian Cricket Academy," Ashraf said.
