THE MAN behind million smiles and who guided Team India to the path of victory is in great demand. Gary Kirsten , coach of the world champion Indian cricket team was approached by cricket South Africa to take the place of coach from Corrie Van Zyl in June, but he has not taken a decision yet.
Just after the world witnessed India’s victory the coach stood up on his toes with joy to celebrate his team’s hard work that resulted in such a magnificent win. Kirsten, under whose guidance and support, the Indian team won the world cup after 28 years, has always given the credit to the players.
When he took up the role of coach for India, many predicted that will be a cultural clash but his approach and dedication made India see this day of victory. India became the top ranked team of the cricket world.
Cricket South Africa had reportedly short listed 6 names for the final selection of their coach and included assistant coach Vince Barnes, Allan Donald but obviously none had the capability that Krrsten posses.

Kirsten has scored more than 7000 test runs for South Africa and was a great batsman in his playing days.
