Coach: Duncan Fletcher

DOB: 27.9.48

Playing career: Rhodesia, Zimbabwe, Western Province

Coaching: Western Province, Glamorgan, England

Fletcher became England's first overseas coach when he was appointed to succeed David Lloyd in June 1999.

He played an integral role in reviving the team's fortunes which brought four successive series wins against Zimbabwe, West Indies, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

England were beaten 4-1 by Australia during the summer but Fletcher's plans were disrupted by injuries to key players, including skipper Nasser Hussain, with whom he has struck up a close working relationship.

Faced with an even tougher assignment in India, with a number of senior players missing from the squad, he and Hussain planned well to neutralise India's vaunted batting line-up.

And his mantras of team-work and pressure cricket resulted in a tied six-match one-day series, a result he termed a "moral victory".

Leading Zimbabwe to a 13-run win over Australia during the 1983 World Cup was the highlight of Fletcher's playing career.

After a spell as Western Province director of cricket, he headed for England in 1997 and guided Glamorgan to the County Championship title in his first season in charge.
