Desi or Videshi...

now that gary kirsten is the front runner for the post of team India coach...every one in media is having a field day on why we need foreigner for the post...don't we have any worthy at home to select...a foreigner will never understand our subcontinent culture...and so on...

now, i am just fed up of this national foreign coach debate and especially foreign coach will not understand our 'subcontinent culture'...

now what is subcontinent culture...is it this...

sir please come to nets we will give you dollies so that you will feel you are in good knick...

oh no sir, don't bowl with full steam in nets otherwise you will be exhausted by the time match will start...

out of form??? not getting enough runs???...dont worry sir...i have solution ready, please tie this 'taveej' in you arm and lo, your form will return with the ashirvad of baba shri 100000000001...

not comfortable facing short pitch stuff...sir...duck the same way you duck uncomfortable questions...sir...

bowling wides...no problem sir, i will ask umpire to shift stumps exactly to the place where your are bowling...

fielding drills...no problem sir...i will have two rounds of ground on your behalf...you just sit and enjoy sunshine...have ordered a glass of juice to freshen up you a bit...

catching problem??...sir the way you are catching sponsors, endorsements...this will certainly help in catching the ball...you just have to think it like endorsement is coming your way...

worrying about your place in side...sir i was master of 'political science' i have already met selectors and 'briefed' them about how 'committed' you are to over come your lack of form which is not good for just past few months...and within next couple months you will start showing some results...

done worry about the young lad sir...he is not a threat...he doesn't know how much "work, time and efforts" we are putting to be "where we are"...i have briefed this to our president also...he too understands it...sir be thick skinned and enjoy till it lasts...

if none of above...then i really don't know what to understand when one says about 'he wont understand our subcontinent culture' ....

please can someone explain...???

Pan, you are sipoy of pan.
Here I wish to share my thought with you.

A teacher should always be qualified and experienced than the pupils. Here if you see the record of Kirsten, is he higher qualified than...
Sachin
Dravid
Ganguli
Kumble
They all have much contribution to the international cricket than Kirsten....
Are you agree with me....I think we are playing well without coach.
Coach is needed for some other teams...or coach should be 'Deshi'
Are you agree with me
