He has played 101 Test matches and 185 One Day Internationals for South Africa between 1993 and 2004, mainly as an opening batsman. His half-brother Peter, also played provincial cricket for Western Province, and then later for the South Africa cricket team which included the highlight of the Cricket World Cup in 1992.
Bangladesh Cricket Board wants him
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has been trying to get the World Cup winning coach Gary Kirsten. The South African former batsman also has no ambition to work with Bangladesh. The problem is elsewhere. Carsten is associated with the Big Bash team Hobart Hurricane and IPL’s Royal Challengers Bangalore. Curtain not interested in severing ties with the two franchises. BCK’s 2011 World Cup winning coach, however, does not have the shortage of BCB efforts to get it.
As the team consultant (team consultant) BCB wants to get Kirsten as it can not be found in full time of the year. Whether or not caster works as a consultant, it is not yet finalized. BCB media committee chief Jalal Yunus told the media this afternoon, “Trying, you know that as the team consultant, Gerry Kirsten’s name was already told by our president. He (Kirsten) is on our list. He will come as a team consultant. But there is no talk yet. Hopefully, it will happen after the IPL.
The Demands of Bangladesh from Kirsten
BCB has been negotiating with Kirsten for a long time. Ultimately, if the bat goes on in the bat, it would be possible to work with Carleton’s role, with the idea that Jalal Yunus, “not just the original team, the Under-19s,” the “team” will work with the entire framework. He will work for a full and long-term. Team Director, will work as a team consultant. Advise. However, there will be the head coach, other coaching staff will be there. He will be the counselor above all.’
Since Carsten associated with the franchise team, Bangladesh will not get the full time of the year, the BCB is taking it for granted. Jalal said, “When his assignment is there, then there will be Bangladesh. If we are busy or outside, we will not be able to prevent them. “The matter of the Chief Executive of BCB Media Committee, however, is not certain about Carsten’s case.”
Assistant coach and Batting coach
BCB has been looking for a batting coach for a long time. As a batting coach, South Africa’s other batsman Neil McKenzie went a long way, but why did not finalized yet, it is not clear. If both of Kirsten-McKenzie are final, what will be the main coach’s job? Jalal’s explanation, ‘Carsten will not be in the field all day. He will be on other issues. Consult the infrastructure. If needed, work in development. Which Eddie Barlow did.’
Jalal Yunus is optimistic, before getting the BCB head coach before the West Indies tour in June. Only the head coach did not finish, because of Richard Helsel’s departure, an assistant coach is going to find BCB.
