Former Australian cricketer and World Cup-winning coach Dav Whatmore have decided to return to India to join the Baroda team as its head coach for the upcoming domestic season.

The development was confirmed by Baroda Cricket Association secretary Ajit Lele on Friday.

"He (Whatmore) joined the day before yesterday as the head coach and he will guide other coaches also, other age groups," Lele said.

The 67-year-old was the coach of the Sri Lankan team that won the World Cup in 1996.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) had appointed Whatmore as national coach in 2005, he coached the Tigers for two years and announced his resignation after the conclusion of the 2007 World Cup.

He also worked with many teams and in the Indian domestic circuit, he has had Kerala under his coaching. He last worked with Nepal cricket.

The BCCI has already announced the domestic schedule for the 2021-22 season and this time the Ranji Trophy will also be played after it had to be canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic last season.
