Nathan grateful to Gary Kirsten

Calcutta: In awe of his coach Gary Kirsten, Delhi DareDevils 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 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 amazing, it’s like nothing I have seen before. He has a lot of game awareness,” Coulter-Nile, who did well to pick up two scalps in Saturday’s four-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders, told iplt20.com.

“Gary literally sat me down and talked about how I construct my overs and stuff. To sit down and actually think about what I am doing is probably the biggest thing I can grasp,” he said.

Delhi lost their tournament-opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore before bouncing back on Saturday.

“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 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, ” said the bowler.
