Gary Kirsten looks forward to work with Kevin Pietersen

World Cup winning coach Gary Kirsten, now the coach of Delhi Daredevils  said that he looks forward to work with the much maligned English batsman Kevin Pietersen.

Kirsten said, “I love cricket coaching, I love being with an international team. But unfortunately the demands of it don’t suit where I want to be.”

Kirsten had praise for the job done by Zimbabwean Flower, saying: “It’s a pressurised sport and I think Andy Flower over many years did an exceptional job.

“I had many chats with Andy and I enjoyed his way. I have often wondered whether I could go in with my coaching philosophies and thinking that it could work within that environment.

“I’m taking on the IPL team Delhi — thank goodness it’s a shorter period of time — but I’m looking forward to that challenge and the one thing I’m really looking forward to is working with some Englishmen, some Australians, some West Indians maybe, some South Africans and Indians.”

Limited-overs coach Ashley Giles is another leading contender for the job, although he fared little better in Australia as the team slipped to 4-1 and 3-0 defeats in the one-day and Twenty20 series which followed the Ashes.

Whoever takes charge will be without the services of star batsman Kevin Pietersen, whose England career came to an abrupt end this week after officials announced they’d “unanimously” wanted to rebuild the side without him.
