Fletcher right man for Ind: Hussain
Friday 02 September 2011

India coach Duncan Fletcher has had a tough time of it in England so far in the series. But former England skipper Nasser Hussain has backed the Fletcher’s ability to dig India out of trouble.

"India are in very, very solid hands. What Duncan did for English cricket is exceptional. He was the one who started the turnaround. A lot of what's been done to the England team, Duncan should take credit for," says Hussain.

Hussain added that there could be a slight clash of cultures between Fletcher and the players in terms of training methodology

"There's going to be a slight cultural thing. He's going to want them to be fitter, better prepared and better trained, and they just love batting in the nets," stated Hussain.

"The modern way is to be in the nets and in the gym and work hard as well, so he's going to have to fight a bit of a battle there. But his results for England speak for themselves. It'll be a difficult job, because they'll want a continuation of the success they've got at the moment - but Duncan's the right man to do that.

"They're a slightly ageing side and he has to introduce players, eventually put his arm around one of the greats and maybe move him sideways."
