Duncan Fletcher`s tenure likely to be extended till 2015 World cup: Report
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The scintillating performance of Indian cricket team in the just concluded ICC Champions Trophy in England migh result in the BCCI extending the tenure of coach Duncan Fletcher.
Fletcher came across a lot of criticism during India`s poor performance in the Test matches and coped up with the same within no time.
Coach Fletcher was appointed after the Indian team`s historic victory at the 2011 World Cup. However, Team India`s image as well as ranking took a beating after consecutive defeats in the away Test series against England and Australia.
Later, it suffered humiliation at the hands of England at home as well.
Soon Fletcher’s abilities were being questioned with his chances of getting sacked increasing day by day but the BCCI extended his duration for another year after India`s performance improved as they comprehensively defeated Australia at home in the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
Following the Champions Trophy win, Fletcher`s tenure is likely to be extended till 2015 World Cup.
As per a report in a leading Indian daily, the BCCI is of the opinion that a coach and his support staff needs to be given more time to build a team. So, the Zimbabwean, in all likeliness, will be given an extended run.
