India has never had a wicket-keeping coach and Kiran More feels that MS Dhoni is just the ideal candidate to become India’s first ever wicketkeeping coach. Kiran More in an interview highlighted the fact that wicketkeeping is a key area and it is being neglected. He said that a wicketkeeping coach is also necessary.
“Wicketkeeping is a key area of the team. If you don’t have a good wicketkeeper, it affects the whole team. That is the area which is being neglected. It is very important to have a wicketkeeping coach. We carry batting coaches, bowling coaches, and fielding coaches along with the team. A wicketkeeping coach is also necessary.”
Kiran More further added
“Wicketkeeper can create chances in all formats. Thus we have to work on wicketkeeping skills. It’s not like after “I reach the top level, I will work hard on it’. You have to have a strong foundation,”
“If a wicketkeeper gets injured using a wrong technique, it affects his batting and his long-term prospect of representing the country. There are chances of getting chronically injured if the wicketkeeping technique is not correct. That’s why it is important to create a foundation at a young age.”
Do you agree with Kiran More? Does India actually need a wicketkeeping coach and if yes, is MS Dhoni the perfect choice?
