Sandeep Patil has been named director of cricket operations at the National Cricket Academy, replacing Dav Whatmore, who will be the Kolkata Knight Riders coach for the third season of the IPL. Patil starts work on November 1, the day after Whatmore's two-year stint in Bangalore ends.

Patil, 53, has significant coaching experience. He first served as India A coach, then coached the Indian team before taking charge of Kenya. He resigned after taking them to the semi-final of the 2003 World Cup and returned to India for the next 18 months. A stint with India A was followed by his move to Oman, whom he helped qualify for the ICC Trophy after some strong performances in the ACC Trophy.

He went on to serve as the coach of the Mumbai Champs in the ICL but returned to the mainstream when he cut ties with the unofficial league ahead of the second season.

Whatmore replaces former Australian coach John Buchanan as the Knight Riders coach.
