Sharjah, United Arab Emirates: The Pakistan Cricket Board on Tuesday set Feb. 6 as the deadline for applicants for the positions of national team head coach, batting coach and fielding coach.
   
Australia's Dav Whatmore and Julian Fountain of England quit as head coach and fielding coach respectively after Pakistan won the third test by five wickets in a thrilling run-chase to share the test series against Sri Lanka 1-1.
   
The Pakistan team doesn't have a batting coach and the new post has been created by the cricket board.
   
The PCB said in an advertisement that all the interested candidates should have "at least five years of working experience in their respective cricketing role."
   
PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf came under criticism for appointing a foreign coach when he brought in Whatmore for a two-year period in 2012.
   
Ashraf was suspended by a court in Islamabad last year after his re-election as PCB chairman for a period of four years was challenged, but he was restored by a divisional bench last week.
