Teams can have a different batting coach for T20 format, says Gambhir

New Delhi, May 20 (SocialNews.XYZ) Former India batsman Gautam Gambhir believes it is not important for an individual to have a lot of international experience in order to become a successful cricket coach.

According to Gambhir, experience matters when it comes to selectors but not for coaches.


"It's not important that you have played a lot of cricket, for you to be a very successful coach - probably, that's right for a selector, but not for a coach," Gambhir said on Star Sports Cricket Connected show.

"It is really not true that someone who hasn't played international cricket or who hasn't played enough cricket, can't become a successful coach," he added.

Gambhir, who is now a politician, believes teams can have a different batting coach for the T20 format.

"Probably you can just have a different T20 batting coach, just for that particular format."

According to the 2011 World Cup, the role of a coach is to free the mind of a cricketer and help a batsman be clear in his thought process.

"What ultimately a coach does in a T20 format is he frees your mindset and feeds your mindset and make you hit those goals and those big shots," said Gambhir.

"No one teaches you how to hit a lap shot or a reverse lap shot, no coach can do that. If someone is trying to do that to a player, he is harming him more than actually making him a better player," he added.
