Indian Team Coach
Kirsten signs up as new India cricket coach
The deal was sealed after all the issues relating to Kirsten's appointment were sorted out Tuesday, paving the way for the former opener to occupy the hot-seat, vacant since the exit of Australian Greg Chappell in April last year. Shah said Kirsten will meet the players in Bangalore, venue for India's third and final Test against Pakistan on December 8-12.
"Kirsten will be spending a couple of days with the Indian team in Bangalore during the third Test against Pakistan," he said. "He will be with the Indian team in Australia as a consultant for a couple of weeks before taking over full-time in March when India host South Africa."
India are to leave for Australia on December 17 to play four Tests and a limited-over tri-series, with Sri Lanka as the third team. Kirsten, 40, told the cricinfo.com website that he would be honoured to take charge of the Indian team. "It is a huge honour and I'm looking forward to the challenge with as much enthusiasm as any challenge I've ever faced. I know how big the job is and I know it won't be easy, but it's also something I really want to do, and do well," he said. Kirsten, who who quit international cricket in 2004 after scoring 7,289 runs in 101 Tests, also said he was excited about the prospect of India facing his home country in his first match as coach.
Kirsten certain to take over as India coach
The former South Africa opener was interviewed for the post on Monday and it is believed a two-year contract has been agreed in principle. Kirsten is currently heading back to South Africa to discuss the move with his family.
Should he take over, Kirsten would succeed Australian Greg Chappell, who resigned following India's group-stage exit at the World Cup in March. An official announcement is expected early next week. Kirsten, 40, played in 101 Tests and 185 one-day internationals for South Africa in an 11-year international career which ended in 2004.

Kartik, Harbhajan recalled into Test squad
The 27-year-old was dropped from the test and one-day teams after the World Cup in March due to poor form and missed the test series win in England that concluded in August.
However, Harbhajan earned a recall to the one-day side after helping India win the Twenty20 World Cup in September and his strong recent performances have impressed the test selectors.
Left-armer Murali Kartik was also included as the third specialist spinner after he did well on his one-day return in October. Veteran leg spinner Anil Kumble leads the side for the three-test series while wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was named vice-captain, giving a clear indication the one-day and Twenty20 skipper will take over as test captain in the future.
India Test Squad: Anil Kumble (Captain), Wasim Jaffer, Dinesh Karthik, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, Vangipurappu Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Murali Kartik.
Kumble to lead India Test team against Pakistan
The leg spinner, who quit One-day cricket after this year's World Cup, has 566 wickets in 118 Tests, and is India's highest wicket-taker in the longer version of the game. He made his Test debut against England at Manchester in 1990 and is methodical and gentlemanly on and off the field, and has been a match-winner for India. He also equalled Jim Laker's record of taking all 10 wickets in an innings when he achieved the feat against Pakistan in the Ferozeshah Kotla Test in 1999.
