Former Pakistan head coach Dav Whatmore will help Afghanistan, Ireland, Scotland and the United Arab Emirates prepare for the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand after joining the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) High Performance Programme (HPP).

Whatmore will begin by helping Scotland from May 14.

“I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with the leading Associate and Affiliate teams during such a memorable period in world cricket,” Whatmore said. “We have seen some amazing performances recently from these teams, and, over the next 10 months, I look forward to being able to assist in honing their performances even further.

“The ICC Cricket World Cup is the world’s biggest stage for any cricketer. It takes hard work, dedication and motivation to succeed at such a huge global event, as well as unflinching confidence. I hope to be able to assist on all of these fronts to ensure that Afghanistan, Ireland, Scotland and the UAE fire on all cylinders from the moment they arrive in Australia and New Zealand next year.”
