Gary Kirsten Odds On Favourite To Coach Proteas

Mark my words, Gary Kirsten will coach the Proteas.

India’s Cricket World Cup-winning coach  remains one of the candidates for the Proteas’ role, as the shortlist gets even shorter with each passing day.

The latest possible candidate to have dropped out is Andy Flower, who on Tuesday signed a new contract to stay on as England coach, while last week Duncan Fletcher was unveiled as Kirsten’s successor in charge of India.

That leaves Kirsten, Cape Cobras coach Richard Pybus, Highveld Lions coach Dave Nosworthy and current assistant Proteas coach Vincent Barnes as the last men standing.

If I was the Proteas brains trust I would be bending over backwards to make sure he gets the job. Here’s hoping.

via Proteas shortlist gets shorter: Sport: Cricket: Proteas.
