Dubai: Apr 20, 2014

In awe of his coach Gary Kirsten, Delhi Daredevils (DD) pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile says the South African has provided him a never-before-experienced insight into cricket in general and his bowling in particular.

“Gary [Kirsten] has been really good. He is always willing to come to you and have a chat and has always got an open door, which is fantastic. His insight into cricket is like nothing I have seen before. He has a lot of game awareness, which I haven’t really thought too much about,” Coulter-Nile, who did well to pick up two scalps in last night’s four-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders [KKR] in the IPL, said.

“He literally sat me down and talked about how I construct my overs and stuff, which I have never thought about. To sit down and actually think about what I am doing is probably the biggest thing I can grasp,” he told the IPL’s official website.

Delhi lost their tournament-opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) before bouncing back last night.

“Of course! First win for the boys and that is a huge positive. It was a good all-round performance by the guys. The batting performance was good right from the very start with Mayank Agarwal getting us off to a flier. He was fantastic and so were Dinesh Karthik and JP Duminy who got us home beautifully,” said the bowler.

Coulter-Nile played for the Mumbai Indians (MI) last year.

Asked how the transition has been so far, he said, “It has been an amazing time with the Delhi setup. They are a great bunch of guys and I couldn’t have asked for a better team.”

On whether playing for Delhi Daredevils will help hims grow as a cricketer, Coulter-Nile said, “Delhi Daredevils is the place, which will help me grow as a cricketer. Apart from me, there are a lot of other youngsters who will come through as better cricketers and I can promise you that. I don’t think anyone here will leave Delhi Daredevils without improving their game.”
