Gary Kirsten meets Bangladeshi cricketers
Gary Kirsten, a former South African cricketer and one of the brightest names in the coaching world, has officially met Bangladeshi cricketers for the first time. Kirsten attended the interview at the invitation of Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo.
The cricket world was paralyzed by the coronavirus attack. International cricket has returned to the field after being closed for almost four months. However, cricket has not returned to Bangladesh yet. The cricketers have started practicing. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is also thinking of playing a match at 22 yards soon.
Although, there is no match, so there are no work. So cricketers are regularly participating in online virtual meetings. Coaching staff members are also joining the meeting. Everyone is involved in cricket even during this difficult time by discussing cricket together. Domingo surprised this regular meeting of Bangladesh. He invited his former colleague Kirsten to meet Bangladeshi cricketers.
Kirsten joined the Mushfiqur-Tamim team in response to the call of the Bangladesh head coach. He joined the coaching and staff cricketers on Wednesday (August 5). He has discussed with cricketers for a long time. It was basically a session of exchanging strategic experiences. Domingo took the initiative, thinking that this discussion would be useful for the betterment of the disciples.
Incidentally, Kirsten was India’s 2011 World Cup winning coach. He was instrumental in helping the Indian team turn around after their failure in the 2006 World Cup. After the departure of former Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurasingh, there were rumors that he would be brought in as a coach. Although it was not possible, Kirsten accompanied the Bangladeshi cricketers as a surprise.
