Pakistan recently roped in Gary Kirsten as their white-ball head coach for two years.

Pakistan’s white-ball captain Babar Azam has expressed his thoughts on how the newly appointed white-ball head coach Gary Kirsten works with the Pakistan Cricket Team while working in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

The former South African player Kirsten is currently a part of the Gujarat Titans (GT) franchise in the IPL 2024. He is travelling alongside the team as their batting coach. Last month, Gary was roped in as Pakistan’s white-ball head coach on a two-year contract.

The 56-year-old has previously served as head coach of the Indian Cricket Team (2008–11) and South Africa (2011–13). One of the biggest success Kirsten got in his coaching career was when he led India to famous ODI World Cup victory in 2011 which which ended the Men in Blue’s 28-year ICC ODI title drought.
