Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Dav Whatmore wants to end his two-year coaching stint with Pakistan by winning a test series against a country which he coached to win the World Cup 18 years ago.


  
Pakistan hasn't won a test series since Whatmore joined them in 2012, but the former Australia test batsman said Monday he wanted to end his job on a winning note.
   
"(I want to) win, particularly against Sri Lanka, the team I coached for six years," Whatmore said as he prepared Pakistan for Wednesday's second test after drawing the first of a three-match series in Abu Dhabi. "I am keen on doing well against them, some of them are very good friends but when I enter the field we are enemies, so I am keen to finish the stint with a win."
   
Whatmore twice coached Sri Lanka and was the coach of the side which won the World Cup in 1996 in Lahore.
   
Under Whatmore, who was born in Sri Lanka, Pakistan drew test series against South Africa and Zimbabwe in 2013, and lost a test series in Sri Lanka in 2012 before the Proteas whitewashed Pakistan 3-0 at home last year.
