Former India captain MS Dhoni and then Team India coach Gary Kirsten's partnership created some extraordinary outcomes for the team. From turning into the top Test-playing country in the ICC rankings for the first time to winning the ICC World Cup in 2011, Kirsten and Dhoni's understanding helped the team.
Talking about Dhoni in an ongoing meeting Kirsten called attention to that MS Dhoni's dependability made him one of the most amazing individuals the South African had ever met.
"One of the most noteworthy individuals I have met, he is an extraordinary pioneer of individuals, he has unfathomable nearness as a pioneer, however, the most significant thing is that he is faithful," Kirsten said about Dhoni on The RK Show on YouTube.
Speaking progressively about Dhoni, Kirsten reviewed an occurrence when Dhoni chose not to go to an occasion after the three South Africans in the training staff, which included Kirsten, were not taken into account the equivalent.
"I'll always remember, not long before the World Cup, we were welcome to Bangalore to go to the flight school, to go and sort of view that. Clearly, we had two or three outsiders in our care staff, and we got word back on the morning before the entire group was intended to go – and everybody was anticipating the occasion – that the three South Africans, which were me, Paddy Upton and Eric Simmons, wouldn't have been permitted into the flight school since it was viewed as a potential security chance.
"So MS dropped the entire occasion. He just stated, 'These are my kin. In the event that they're not permitted in, none of us are going'. What's more, that was what he was about," Kirsten said.
Kisten proceeded to include that he and Dhoni invested a great deal of energy with one another examining matters independent of whether the group won or lost and they figured out how to make a decent functioning relationship with each other
"He was faithful, to me, and I think he saw also, there were times when we didn't generally dominate matches and we'd have some difficult stretches. We'd invest a ton of energy, only one on one together, talking through, taking the group forward. I think we fabricated a solid relationship in the three years we had together," Kirsten included.
