T20 World Cup 2022 – Gary Kirsten, Dan Christian added to Netherlands coaching staff

Holland has added Gary Kirsten and Dan Christian to their coaching staff on short-term deals for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.
Kirsten’s academy in Cape Town, where Holland trains Ryan Cook has been working for a number of years, hosted the squad for a training camp in late September ahead of the tournament, while Christian joined the team in Adelaide following their recent arrival in Australia.

“We are very pleased to welcome both Gary Kirsten and Dan Christian to our coaching staff for the T20 World Cup,” said Roland Lefebvre, KNCB’s high performance manager. “They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table which will be of great help in the lead up to and during the World Cup.”

Kirsten has been part of three previous T20 World Cups as a head coach – in 2009 and 2010 with India and in 2012 with South Africa – but his team has never made it as far as the semi-finals. This year he was the batting coach as Gujarat Titans won the IPL 2022 but his fiery Welsh side endured a winless season in the Hundred, and fetches the Wooden Spoon.

“I really enjoyed working with the Dutch team in Cape Town and I look forward to joining them as a consultant in the T20 World Cup,” Kirsten said. “I was impressed with the level of skill and professionalism during the camp. They will be ready and determined to make a big impact at the T20 World Cup.”

Christian was part of Australia’s squads for the 2010, 2012 and 2014 T20 World Cups and was a traveling reserve when they won the 2021 edition in the UAE. He has extensive knowledge of the conditions at each venue for the 2022 edition as the most capped player in Big Bash history.

Christian added: “I’ve had a good few weeks getting to know the boys and I’ve been extremely impressed with everyone’s work ethic on the training pitch. I’m looking forward to seeing them have some well-deserved success on the pitch. .”

The Netherlands played theirs first warm-up match on Monday, losing to Scotland by 18 runs, and will play the West Indies in Melbourne on Wednesday before traveling to Geelong for their first round matches against the UAE, Namibia and Sri Lanka.
