SYDNEY: Former Australian Test cricketer Geoff Lawson will replace Bob Woolmer as Pakistan coach, the one-time fast bowler said on Monday.

Lawson said he received a call from the Pakistan Cricket Board on Sunday confirming his appointment as successor to Woolmer.

Lawson, 49, took 180 wickets in 46 Tests for Australia between 1980-1989.

He has never coached before at international level, but beat fellow Australians Dav Whatmore and Richard Done to the post. “It’s a challenge,” said Lawson. “I think it’s a wonderful challenge to have because it’s such a talented squad they have over there.

“They’re coming off a poor World Cup and controversially being beaten by Ireland, and all the things that accompany that, but when you look at the class of players they have you’ve just got to be excited about being involved with them.”

Lawson’s appointment follows that of Trevor Bayliss as the coach of Sri Lanka. — AP
