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 one-off test, three ODIs and two Twenty20s against Zimbabwe last month.
The test series against Sri Lanka begins in Abu Dhabi on Oct. 18, followed by five one-day internationals and a Twenty20.
The PCB says "Khan will be the coach for the Pakistan vs. 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.
