#IPL: No one more motivated than Yuvraj Singh, says Delhi coach Gary Kirsten

Delhi Daredevils’ chief coach Gary Kirsten has said that Yuvraj Singh, the franchise’s multi-million dollar signing, if fitter and more motivated than ever.

IPLadvertKirsten was quick to point that he was the one who wanted him in the team: “I had a great experience working with Yuvraj in the Indian team.

:He is fit as he has ever been and for me, I really wanted him in this team as he is from this part of the world.

“I don’t think there is a guy more motivated than Yuvraj.”

When asked whether he was caught off-guard in respect to the demands of coaching a franchise in the IPL after the team finished last in the table in 2014, Kirsten was frank in his response: “Yeah could be - It’s a good observation.

“I think I was without a doubt (caught off-guard),” he added. “I think I learnt a lot from last year that IPL is different to international cricket.

“It takes a bit of getting used to for any coach.”
