Aftab Habib, the former England batsman, has been appointed as Hong Kong's coach on a three-year contract.
Habib, 35, was selected from a field of 25 candidates according to the website of the Hong Kong Cricket Association (HKCA).
"We did a very extensive search and narrowed it down to a shortlist of four," Clive Howard, the HKCA chairman said. "Aftab was our final choice. "We have offered him a three-year contract. One of the main conditions for the job was that the new coach be based in Hong Kong."
Habib's first assignment is in Kuwait for the inaugural ACC Twenty20 tournament which got underway yesterday.
