Gary Kirsten is every Indian cricket fan’s favourite coach. He led the team with great success from 2008 and they reached the apex of glory in 2011 winning the 50 overs World Cup hosted at home. Ever since he has been around Indian cricket working with various Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises. At present, Kirsten is the batting coach of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team in the ongoing IPL 2018. Though the team has not quite achieved the kind of results he would hope for, the South African is mighty pleased with the way former India skipper MS Dhoni is batting.
Everyone from the experts to the commoners questioned Dhoni’s ability to finish matches with a few already checking about his retirement plans. The wicketkeeper-batsman who is leading the Chennai Super Kings this season answered all the questions with his bat. He his hitting the ball as well as he ever did, and most people feel this is the Dhoni we saw in 2005-06. He has been there for CSK till the very end and taken his team home more often than not.
His hunger to perform is amazing
Talking about his former commander and how at 36, he has managed to reinvent his game Kirsten said, “He just keeps producing and his hunger for performance is amazing. I don’t think he has reinvented anything, he has just got back at his incredible consistent best,” he stated in an interview with NDTV.
Among the many things, Dhoni is certainly looking forward to the World Cup in 2019, he is not only eager to play there but with the form, he is carrying at the moment doubles the chances of the Indian team to win back the cup.
This World Cup will certainly be his last and the first for Virat Kohli as captain, both of them have had a really fruitful relationship thus far and Kohli will want his captain to conclude his glorious career on a high as a world champion.
“Lots of teams have a chance including India, so it will be an exciting tournament,” said the former coach when talking about the Indian team’s chance of lifting the title in England.
