Moin Khan has been named the new coach of Pakistan in a number of changes made by the new management committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Moin, a former Pakistan captain and wicketkeeper, will replace Dav Whatmore, whose contract expires this month.

The 42-year-old was appointed team manager before the tour to Zimbabwe last August but had recently been replaced by Zakir Khan.

Waqar Younis, another former captain and ex-coach, had been regarded as the favourite to regain the post he left in 2011.

In other changes, Aamir Sohail has been removed as chief selector despite only being appointed last week by Zaka Ashraf, with Azhar Khan named as acting chief selector.

Ashraf was sacked as PCB chairman on Monday by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who appointed the new eight-member management committee.

PCB chief operating officer Subhan Ahmed revealed that the committee had endorsed Najam Sethi as their chairman during a meeting lasting well over five hours at Gaddafi Stadium on Tuesday.

Former Test opener Shoaib Mohammad has been appointed as fielding coach, while bowling coach Mohammad Akram's contract has been extended by two years.
