Chennai: No miracles or dramatic changes overnight was the strong message that newly-appointed coach Duncan Fletcher sent out as he took his first tentative steps into the hot waters of Indian cricket here Friday.
Admitting the obvious that he was excited and looked forward to his assignment, the 62-year old former Zimbabwe captain said he needed to first settle down, understand the needs and the players and accordingly tailor his working.
"I checked with Gary Kirsten when I was in Cape Town, and also had a meeting with Eric Symonds (the bowling coach). Together, they have given some advices. I have checked with the other sides and noticed that they all work differently. Coaching the Indian team is a new challenge for me.
