SA should be No 1 in ODIs: Kirsten

Johannesburg, Jan 19: Having led the team to reach the top in the longer version of the game, coach Gary Kirsten wants South Africa to be No 1 in ODIs.

Earlier when he was associated with the Indian cricket team, MS Dhoni's men were leading the points table. After leading South Africa to the top in Tests, Gary Kirsten has proved that he is a talented coach.

South Africa playing a three-match ODI series against New Zealand, Kirsten said the team would look to reach the No 1 position.

"We would like to perform at a higher level than we have in one-day cricket. We've been okay but we haven't been outstanding."

"We believe that we are capable of being a unit that can really perform at one-day level," he said.

Though a loss to India has ensured that South Africa would be placed at the top, India, England, South Africa and Australia are tightly placed as the competition for the No 1 spot has begun.
