During his tenure as Coach of the Indian cricket team “Guru Gary” led India to its glorious victory of the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. This victory made India the first country to win the Cricket World Cup final on home soil and brought home the cup after a long wait of 28 years.

With his guidance, India also won a home series against Australia beating them 2–0. Apart from clinching the Border-Gavaskar trophy, he also coached India to its first bilateral series win in Sri Lanka against Sri Lanka and India’s first Test and One-Day International series victories against New Zealand in New Zealand after 40 years. India also won the Compaq Cup, defeating Sri Lanka in the finals on 14 September 2009 by 46 runs. A highly accomplished batsman himself, he has brought in a considerable amount of improvement in the batting performances, which is largely associated with his ability to instil better confidence among younger players.

Gary Kirsten has been praised by all players for improving/enhancing their playing techniques, motivating them and discussing tactics that can be deployed on the field. The results could be clearly seen within months. He is considered the key force behind the clearly visible performance improvement in all players. In 2010, prior to the start of India’s tour of South Africa, Indian captain M.S. Dhoni described him as “The best thing to happen to Indian cricket.”
