Former England Cricket coach, Duncan Fletcher was appointed as the new coach of the Indian Cricket team on April 27, 2011. The post was left vacant after Gary Kirsten’s tenure ended with the 2011 World Cup win. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) made the announcement of the new coach after a working committee meeting at BCCI’s headquarters in Mumbai. Fletcher was recommended by Kirsten himself and Fletcher held meeting with the senior Indian Cricket players in South Africa in 2011. Fletcher is the fourth foreign coach of India after New Zealand’s John Wright, Australia’s Greg Chappell and South Africa’s Gary Kirsten.

The contract with Duncan Fletcher is for a period of two years. However, Eric Simons, who was India’s bowling coach during Kirsten’s term, is to continue in the same capacity.
