Former World Cup-winning captain Imran Khan says ex-test paceman Aaqib Javed should be appointed coach of Pakistan.

"Pakistan have won two youth World Cups under him and he seems the ideal choice to take over as coach," Imran told a news conference on Saturday.

Javed, 34, went on to play a total of 22 tests and 163 one-day internationals after making his test debut against New Zealand in Wellington as a 16-year-old.

Imran said he was shocked to learn that Pakistan's World Cup coach Bob Woolmer had been murdered.

"I thought he died from natural causes. To learn he was murdered was a surprise to me because I can't understand what motive anyone would have to murder him," said Imran, who played in 88 tests and 175 one-dayers and led the team to World Cup glory in 1992.

Former England batsman Woolmer, 58, was found unconscious in his Kingston hotel room and died later in hospital last Sunday. Jamaican police said he was strangled to death.

"Only time will tell who is responsible for his death but why someone would want to kill him is a puzzle," said Imran.

Imran supported the appointment of Younis Khan as captain in place of Inzamam-ul-Haq, who has resigned as skipper and retired from one-dayers after Pakistan's World Cup exit.
