Hyderabad: Jan 28, 2014 


Former South African cricketer Gary Kirsten is keen to set up a cricket academy in India, if he gets an opportunity.


The newly appointed Delhi Daredevils coach team said nothing was “majorly” planned, this was something he was certainly looking into.


“I have been thinking about that. I would like to do it. I will have an opportunity to possibly reach out to lot of younger players in the country. If that opportunity presents itself, I would look forward to taking that opportunity,” he told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.


The coach of India’s 2011 World Cup winning team is already running a cricket academy in South Africa. Kirsten declined to answer queries about Delhi Daredevils captain Virender Sehwag, saying he would not like to comment on individuals.


He also refused to comment on the performance of the Indian team, which lost one-day series in New Zealand Tuesday.
