Modesty - thy name is Kirsten

Among other things I have wondered what makes Kirsten successful and also different from his predecessor Greg Chappell.

The difference as John Wright correctly points out is the fact that Kirsten “understands the importance and the privilege of coaching India"

When you contrast this with the high and mighty Guru Greg who strutted around and intimidated most of us into concluding that we, i.e., India was privileged to have him as coach, the reason for Kirsten’s success is clear.

Modesty, thy name is Kirsten.

This is Wrights view.Wait for a few more years when the time comes to end his contract.

Coaches these days need to have an identity...to be successful... the case with Kirsten looks different...though...

lviss,

You are right, now that everything is going perfectly they will be singing praises, it needs one bad loss for everyone to change their tune.

All Sports Fan,

Eh! Kirsten seems to have become translucent, we see only a vague outline and nothing more. But is it the reason for his success?

NC,

I agree it is typical of Wright to compare himself unfavourably.

Scorpi,

He has already dissappointed by commenting that warm games are inessential.
