S. Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia has hired Sri Lanka’s 1996 World Cup winning coach Dav Whatmore as a consultant coach for the remainder of the First XI cricket season. 


Dav Whatmore was born in Sri Lanka before emigrating to Australia as a child. A right-handed batsman and brilliant slip fieldsman, he scored prolifically in the Sheffield Shield for Victoria, going onto play seven Test matches for Australia during the Packer era with modest success. He retired in 1988-89 to pursue a career in coaching.
