    Have been surprised how long this took to be honest. But Panesar, Fletcher was the main person behind England's success now. Think 2005 etc...

    Why are we even putting this on coaches? Coach can only give their players some insight and instructions, players are the one who has to put in the work and exceed. I am surprised that no one here is blaming this on the media?

    "India don't deserve to be number one Test side in the world," screamed a front-page banner headline in the Times of India, echoing the sentiments of millions in the cricket-mad country.

    It's weird thing about Coaches. In Soccer if a team under performs the manager gets blamed, things don't seem to be as harsh in cricket.

    He killed the whole team. Killed the confidence of every player. India was knocked by Bangladesh in World Cup. And there was more...

    ------------------

    Fletcher isn't doing that but team results are the same.

    Why did Gary leave India within a short period of time, he should have stayed with them
