Our recent launch of another academy in Pune, India is such an exciting opportunity for GKC as well as aspiring and upcoming Indian cricketers.
With Gary winning the 2011 World Cup it was inevitable that India would become a base for GKC said Head coach for GKC India, Ryan van Niekerk
He commented: “GKC is an international brand, and for the last four years we’ve been traveling internationally running high performance camps where we got to know the international space really well, and feel we have significant coaching value to add. We are very excited to start running high performance camps, private coaching, international camps and touring teams. ”
The CEO of Gary Kirsten Cricket India, Mr Anand Mittal stated the need to establish the philosophy of Gary Kirsten Cricket in India. “Gary is loved by millions of cricket lovers in India, his contribution to Indian cricket is irreplaceable. To treasure this respect and love for the nation, and post discussion with Gary, we are 100% committed to this venture and in taking his cricket legacy ahead. Our focus will be to develop a team of coaches of the same values and under guidance of Gary.”
Mr Krish Roy, Head of Business and International Relations of GKCI also commented: “Having worked with Gary and his team over the years, I know how much a team matters to him. ‘Nothing revolves around an individual’ is a core value and keeping this in mind, our team will drive this cricket philosophy ahead.”
