Kirsten says goodbye to Team India
It was time to bid farewell.
And Gary Kirsten arrived very much on time, for his final interaction with the fourth estate before he boards a flight back home.
The South African had announced his decision of not intending to continue after the World Cup, citing personal reasons, and Team India had ensured him a perfect send off by winning cricket's flagship event.
On his final assignment in the Indian blazer, Kirsten was palpably emotional. Asked where he would put the recent success, his answer was very much on expected lines.
"I think right at the top of the pile," he said.
The South African albeit went on to explain his opening statement.
"As a player I had always wanted to win the World Cup but it never happened. So the second best thing was to do it as a coach," Kirsten said.
