Former South Africa batsman and India’s World Cup-winning coach Gary Kirsten has resigned from his post as the coach of the Hobart Hurricanes after just a season with the club, citing personal reasons as the cause for his decision.

Cricket Tasmania have confirmed that Kirsten will not fulfill his contract with the club and will leave with Adam Griffith – who was the assistant of the team in BBL last season – taking over as the coach for the upcoming season.

Meanwhile, in his statement, Gary Kirsten labeled his departure as “unfortunate” as he “enjoyed” his stay at the club. He also vouched for Griffith to be a good coach for the team.

"I have made a decision for a specific personal reason to resign from my role as Head Coach of the Hobart Hurricanes," Kirsten said in a statement. "It is an unfortunate circumstance as I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the club.

"I want to thank everyone involved on the Hurricanes Program for their support and hard work, and I wish the players well for the upcoming season.

"I have no doubt the team will once again be extremely competitive, and under Adam Griffith and George Bailey they will enjoy strong leadership.

"I look forward to remaining a big Hurricanes supporter and will be watching closely from Cape Town. I loved my time in Hobart and explored much of Tasmania on my mountain bike, so thank you for a fantastic experience."

Gary Kirsten recently took over the role of a consultant with the Bangladesh Cricket Board and was a fundamental figure in BCB appointing Steve Rhodes as the head coach of the Tigers. He is also likely to play a part in BCB's future planning regarding its cricket team.
