New Delhi, May 20 : Former India opener Gautam Gambhir believes that having not played international cricket doesn't mean you can’t become a successful T20 batting coach. "Probably you can just have a different T20 batting coach, just for that particular format.
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," Gambhir said on Star Sports show Cricket Connected. What ultimately a coach does in a T20 format is frees your mindset and feeds your mindset and makes you hit those goals and those big shots.
"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.” “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.
