Dav Whatmore has stepped down as head coach of Nepal’s National team after nine months.
Whatmore, 67, had submitted his resignation to the Cricket Association of Nepal via an email on Friday.
According to the sources, his decision was influenced by the Covid-19, which has made it difficult for him to see his family during this pandemic period.
“I have received an email from his (Dav Whatmore) agent today, however, we haven’t made any response. I would like to talk to him personally first before making any decision,” Chatur Bahadur Chand, CAN president said.
