Duncan Fletcher has been appointed as coach of Indian Cricket Team for a period of two years today, at the Working Committee meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Duncan Fletcher’s first task will be to lead Indian Team when they tour to England in July this year.
An all-rounder – left-handed batsman and a right-arm fast-medium bowler – and known for his sharp fielding, Fletcher was the first man to captain Zimbabwe in international cricket. He was the one that led the team that beat Australia in the 1983 World Cup and almost beat India in the famous Tunbridge Wells match which skipper Kapil Dev came out to salvage at 17 for 5.
However the 62-year-old Fletcher is more famous for being Coach than Cricketer.
He was the coach of the England team for almost eight years (2000-2007) when England won the Ashes series for the first time in 18 years.
Hopefully, Duncan Fletcher can raise Indian Cricket Team to new heights after Gary Kirsten left the team on a high.
