Cricket fraternity welcomes Fletcher''s appointment

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan said Fletcher''s biggest challenge during the job with the Indian team will come from the media. "His biggest challenge will come from the media. He has never really understood how it works," Vaughan said. "Duncan fletcher appointed India coach on a 2 yr deal.Great coach who will work well with (India captain Mahendra Singh) Dhoni (and) all the talent," Vaughan, who led the side during Fletcher''s tenure as England coach, added. Former Australian cricketer Michael Bevan welcomed the appointment and said the Zimbabwean should carry forward the legacy left behind by Kirsten. "I don''t really know about Fletcher''s strengths but he was instrumental in turning around the fortunes of England side though. I wish him all the success in future. The new coach will need to carry the gains forward," Bevan said. Former Sri Lanka coach Dav Whatmore said it will be the results which will count in the end. "It is purely a BCCI decision. They must have put in a lot of effort, thought and knowledge into the decision and at the end the result will be what everyone will look at," Whatmore who led Sri Lanka to the World Cup title in 1996, said. After quitting England''s coaching job, Fletcher worked with the South African team as a batting consultant in 2008 and most recently this year before the World Cup. He joined New Zealand in a similar role during their tour of India last year.
