India’s Coach Duncan Fletcher is not available for UAE match as he left for Cape Twon to attend his Mothe-in-Law’s funeral. Till Fletcher is unavailable, assistant coaches, Bharath Arun, R Sridhar and Sanjay Bangar will handle the training sessions with Ravi Shastri overseeing the tactical parts.

The coach is expected to re-join the team for the match against the West Indies on March 6.

The Indians are currently on a rigorous training schedule at Perth, although their next game is  against the United Arab emirates, they by no means would  want to take the UAE lightly, especially when they have a stern taskmaster like ravi shastri who is quite renowned for his no-nonsense behavior.

Fletcher, of late has been subject of intense criticism from most Indian cricket fraternities but the fact that India have won two of their toughest league games and sitting pretty on top of their group standings Fletcher will hope that India carry forward their winning momentum and hopefully retain the world cup, so that he can get an extension in his contract.
