Cricket hero Gary Kirsten on leadership, coaching and changing lives in Khayelitsha

Cricket hero Gary Kirsten has a new BHAG - building a cricket ground for sports mad school kids in Khayelitsha. Now 49, the star batsman who kicked on to become India's World Cup winning coach, is expanding a programme that is installing its fifth block of cricket nets and coaches into Western Cape township schools. On July 6 he will host potential donors in the UK with the intention of raising the £600 000 required to build an artificial pitch for the Chris Hani High School. In this fascinating interview Kirsten explains what motivated this expansion of his Foundation's horizons and offers some insights on leadership, the Proteas and why SA coaches have been so successful globally. - Alec Hogg
