World Cup Likely To Be Kirsten’s Last Assignment With Team India




Gary Kirsten

Gary Kirsten

Gary Kirsten’s contract is unlikely to be extended as the South African opener who coached Team India for three years since 2008 is set to terminate his role as coach after the World Cup in the subcontinent. His decision is driven by his desire to look after his family, especially his sons Joshua and James. The hectic schedule Team India had for the past three years hardly allowed him to spare time for his family and kids.

Needless to say Gary’s contribution to the team has been immense, right from establishing an intimate rapport between the players to infusing into this young team the ‘habit of winning’. The players have already sung in praise of Kirsten’s role as coach in the team. The unassuming person he is, he has always been a man behind the screens and has allowed the players to take the centre stage.

Dhoni and the management said they have done everything they could, ethically, to extend his contract with the team but must respect his decision for it is the family which is more important than money.

Hi Folks! This is Gautham from Madurai, Tamil Nadu. I'm 20 and doing my final year in Mechanical Engineering at Thiagarajar College of Engineering. I'm a self confessed Cricket lover and I have a great fervor towards writing about the game. In the generations I've come across, I've loved watching Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid bat. Besides writing, I have great interest in singing and I'm a great fan of Hariharan and A.R.Rahman sir. I would like to be remembered as one of the greatest sports journalists who changed the way their profession is perceived. I set myself performance goals and believe in giving a hundred percent in whatever I do. I thank God for giving me an opportunity to work with sports mirror so early in my career. I also thank my friends who made me believe in what I do and gave honest comments about my writing. God is great :)
