The new coach of the Indian cricket team Gary Kirsten has finally spoken out in clear terms about the racism controversy after the Sydney test.

"The spirit of the game was breached and I'm not sitting on the fence. The game doesn't need two nations saying I was right. To me it's sad what is going on," said Gary Kirsten Coach, Indian Cricket Team.

"I'm looking at it objectively because I wasn't in the heat of the battle. Maybe I'll have a different perspective if I was in the heat of the battle," said Gary.

The South African, however, believes that the meeting between Kumble and Ponting was the best way to resolve the issue.
