Pakistan have interviewed Richard Done, the former New South Wales 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 part of Pakistan's coaches' shortlist along with fellow Australians Dav Whatmore and Geoff Lawson. Ahsan Malik, the Pakistan board's communications director, confirmed that Done had been interviewed and that the board expected to interview the other two candidates by next week.
Done, who took over as ICC's High Performance Manager from Bob Woolmer in 2004 after the latter was appointed Pakistan's coach, previously visited Pakistan in 2001 on a coaching assignment with the National Academy in Lahore. His main area of 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 10 first-class matches and took 21 wickets at 41.76.
