BCCI plans to extend Kirsten stay
The BCCI have indicated they will extend coach Gary Kirsten's contract until the 2011 World Cup in the subcontinent.
Former South Africa opening batsman Kirsten signed a two-year contract with the Board of Control for Cricket in India in March 2008 and media reports suggested that he would return to his homeland at the end of his term in March this year.
Reports suggested Kirsten was the front-runner to take over the South Africa team following Mickey Arthur's departure from the helm last week.
But BCCI president Shanshank Manohar has revealed he is keen on extending Kirsten's stay.
"He will continue his stint with the Indian team," Manohar told a newspaper. "We will renew his contract."
Kirsten too denied the reports, claiming: "I have not been contacted by Cricket South Africa."
South Africa, under caretaker coach Corrie van Zyl, are currently in India for two Tests and three one-day internationals, starting this weekend.
