A story in The Times Of India said, “Pakistan has roped in Australia-based David Hemp as head coach of the national women’s team which has seen a regular change of guard at the helm of affairs in the last few years.

“The Pakistan Cricket Board said on Thursday that Hemp was appointed after a robust and transparent recruitment process in which a number of foreign and local qualified candidates had taken part in.

“Hemp, who turns 50 next week, has previously coached the Melbourne Stars’ and Victorian women’s cricket teams in Australia’s Women’s Big Bash League between 2015 and 2020, and is also a former Bermuda and Glamorgan captain.

“With 271 first-class matches under his belt in which he scored over 15,000 runs for Glamorgan, Free State and Warwickshire, Hemp is expected to improve the rankings of the Pakistan women’s team which has now gone without any cricket for nearly a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Hemp, who also represented Bermuda in 22 one-day internationals from 2006 to 2009, is a qualified UK level four coach and the second foreigner after New Zealand’s Mark Coles to be appointed head coach of the Pakistani women’s team.”
