Mumbai: A number of senior India and English cricketers have asked MS Dhoni & Co to make maximum use of their new coach Duncan Fletcher's knowledge of England, whom he was coaching previously. However, former India stumper Farookh Engineer believes it is the latter who needs to make the most of the opportunity.
Engineer, who is based in the United Kingdom, reckoned it is the former Zimbabwean skipper, who needs to prove his worth on his first major assignment since India's recent tour to West Indies was hardly a challenge given the absence of most senior players from both teams. "Fletcher has got to prove his worth. He has been praised a lot recently, so let's see how he fares against England. He has to now help our boys win against his former team," Engineer told MiD DAY from Lancashire.
Fletcher, who quit as England coach after the 2007 World Cup, is now in-charge of defending India's No 1 Test ranking against an English team he should be knowing like the back of his hand.
