The Pakistan Cricket Board has ruled out appointing a foreign coach for the national team.

Former test captains Intikhab Alam and Wasim Akram, who are on the four-member committee formed to evaluate and recommend the new coaching team, said none of the shortlisted candidates were foreigners.

''We received a total of 25 applications and after evaluation we have shortlisted some candidates and none are foreigners,'' Alam said.

The PCB is due to appoint a new head coach, batting coach and fielding coach for the national side today.

Australian Dav Whatmore did not extend his two-year contract this month and fielding coach Julian Fountain also left.

Former captains Waqar Younis and Moin Khan were among the favourites to get the top coaching job.
