New Delhi: The BCCI on Friday made it clear that under-fire coach of the Indian team Duncan Fletcher has its "full backing and support" and there was no immediate plans to remove him despite calls for his ouster from a batting icon like Sunil Gavaskar.
Fletcher was summoned by the BCCI chief N. Srinivasan for a meeting on Thursday to discuss the team's sagging performances of late but no warning was given to him that his job was on line. (Rahul Dravid should coach Team India: Sunil Gavaskar)
"Let me set the record straight. Duncan Fletcher has the wholehearted backing and support of BCCI. There has been no discussion on his removal. We told him that we have a lot of faith in his coaching abilities and he should not be worried about anything else", BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel told PTI over phone from Chennai.
