Islamabad - The Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed chief selector Mohsin Khan as the interim coach for the series against Sri Lanka.

The PCB has been looking for a full-time coach after Waqar Younis quit due to personal reasons soon after winning a one-off Test, three ODIs and two Twenty20s against Zimbabwe last month.

The Test series against Sri Lanka begins in Abu Dhabi on October 18, followed by five one-day internationals and a Twenty20.

The PCB says "Khan will be the coach for the Pakistan v Sri Lanka series only."

Former Test batsman Ijaz Ahmed was named as assistant coach.

PCB development manager Intikhab Alam heads the three-man committee looking for a new coach. The committee has shortlisted five names, but last week Alam refused to reveal the names.
