“I had a vision to develop an internationally recognised cricket academy that would be based at a state-of-the-art facility. This vision became a reality when the academy was launched, providing high-performance cricket coaching that not only caters for South African cricketers, but also for cricketers from around the world,” said Kirsten.

Kirsten couldn’t realise his dream of lifting a World Cup as a player. However, he got his due when the Men in Blue lifted the coveted title under his coaching. He was an inspirational figure in the team and had a great bonding with most of the players in the team. He forged a formidable partnership with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the then skipper of India. Following India’s victory, he was carried on the shoulder by the players as the celebrations went on for days.
