He is not so famous as a player but he seems to have good knowledge about cricket. He also had a coaching stint with South Africa. Hope he will do a fine job in tandem with Garry Kirsten. Happy Mylotting!

I havent seen this guy play but I have heard that he has some experience as a coach. Hope he can point out the issues the bowlers are having and try and sort them out. He has very little time since the test series start on the 17th and he will be joining the squad mid next week. He really should be given more time. I hope people dont judge him negatively straight away if the bowlers do not perform well in the first test.

He has experience as a head coach to South African Team from 2002 to 2004 but he doesn't have any experience as a specialist bowling coach. Let us see how he can help Indian bowlers to improve. Happy Mylotting!
