Chris Harris, the former New Zealand all-rounder has manifested a desire to become the fielding coach of the ‘Men in Blue’ in the future. The 45 years old said that he would love to help the ‘Men in Blue’ out with their fielding as he felt that is one domain where there is still scope for improvement.
He would surely love to come over here and help coach the Indian team in their fielding because he thinks it is possibly one domain that India could see some improvement.
India’s batting is quite well and they have got some quality bowlers. He has seen that they can bat, they can bowl, but he thinks they can always work on their fielding said Harris, who represented the New Zealand in 250 One Day Internationals (ODIs) and 23 Tests between 1990 and 2004 told in an exclusive interview.
Harris further said that he has done a wee bit of coaching in the past which would count for something if he is considered for the designation.
He has done a wee bit of coaching. He does not know if it is a dream, but he would surely love to get involved with an international team in a fielding capacity.
According to him, there are so many great legendary coaches now and most of the good coaches want to be head coach or bowling coach or batting coach. But he would love to have a chance to take one of the sides and work on fielding.
The former left-handed batsman also trusts that fielding standards have been on a constant rise as has been evident from the current 2015 International Cricket Council World Cup and also added that in order to be a good fielder, one required to have the right attitude and importantly, hold on to catches that come their way.
It is improving all the time, and they have seen that in this World Cup. There has been some quality fielding, but he thinks there are always those little things that you can do.
