Kirstens departure will be big loss for India: Akram
Akram rated Kirsten as one of the best coaches in the world and said his three-year association with India has done wonders for the team.
“Gary has done wonders for Team India. He is one of the best coaches that I have seen in international cricket. He has a quiet personality and does his job without much fuss. He plays a good part behind the scenes. He has always been a much organised cricketer and we saw that aspect in his coaching as well,” Akram said.
“His qualities as a player and as a person rubbed on Team India as they performed well. MS Dhoni and his men will surely miss him in the dressing room. The management will also have a tough time in trying to find his replacement. But I feel India should concentrate on the World Cup rather than Kirsten. As they say, all good things must come to an end,” Akram told Mobile ESPN.
