New Delhi: There has been a lot of talk about whether the decision of not retaining Virender Sehwag was justified, but Delhi Daredevils coach Gary Kirsten feels that irrespective of how it pans out in the Indian Premier League this season, that was the only way forward.
"At the auction we made a decision to select a new squad and not retain anyone from last year. We are looking towards working with a new squad. Don't know whether it's a right decision or not but that's what we have gone for," Kirsten explained while giving a defensive logic when asked whether it's easier that there are no baggages of last year's failure.
On the first day of Delhi Daredevils' practise with new captain Kevin Pietersen and a new bunch of players, Kirsten emphasised on team bonding more than anything else. (Also read: Pietersen eager to work with Kirsten | Karthik looking forward to being coached by Kirsten)
