Kirsten ready for IPL test

Hyderabad: The Delhi Daredevils ended last in IPL VI. But former India coach Gary Kirsten feels it is an opportunity for the beleaguered side to do well this season and said his experience with Team India will help him in his new role as head coach of the Delhi Franchise.

“You got to come out and work hard, give it your best shot. Sometimes, when the team has not done well, that is not a bad thing. Because, you have an opportunity to really improve. I am looking forward to the Delhi DareDevils having a successful future,” said Kirsten, who had coached the Indian side to victory in the 2011 World Cup.

The Delhi team finished at the bottom of the table in IPL last year, and then they signed Kirsten as the head coach for a period of three years starting from 2014. Kirsten said he is excited to take over as head coach. “I am looking forward to that. It is nice to be back in India. I look forward to the new challenge. It is a different place,” he said.
