At the moment, he is being a backroom boy, letting all of the spotlight on Dhoni and the rest of the team. When they did well, they were glorified. When they have played poorly (as they have done now), they are being pilloried. I don't understand what the problem with Kirsten is here.... He is being consistent in being out of the spotlight...
And if Dhoni can take the praises, he gotta take the criticisms too. You are being completely unfair here... Plus, if Dhoni's excuse is that as a captain, he can have bad games and tourneys, the same can happen to the coach too.
It is not juz Gary btw, Venky and Robin are there too plus the medical staff.

Hahaha, Don't worry I was not blaming him or Dhoni for the loss. I think India played competitive cricket in this series and lost two close games because some poor decisions from its captain.
My question was directed at the new perception (or fact) that "it is the technical inadequacy to play the rising ball that cost India", well in that case it has been a year and half since Gary took over, why have they not recognized this shortcoming yet ?
