    Duncan Fletcher took over from Gary Kirsten in April 2011 after India's victory in the world cup 2011 and since then the team has only gone downhill.

    I realise that the form of the Indian team has been poor but it could have something to do with the coach as well , since the players told the BCCI a few days ago that Duncan Fletcher hasn't been of much help. Under Duncan Fletcher, The English Cricket team had also performed rather poorly particularly in ODIs but now under Andy Flower they are doing well.

    Coach's influence is limited but i think Duncan Fletcher's poor record as a coach should not be ignored. Such a sudden drop in the team's performance since the departure of Kirsten and arrival of Duncan Fletcher can't just be a co-incidence.

    Fletcher's term ends in March 2013 and in all likelihood his contract will not be renewed.

    So my question is , who should be India's next coach ?

    Ganguly's name has been doing the rounds but he himself is non-committal .How do you think would he fare as the coach ?

    Is there anyone else in your mind, Indian or Foreigner, who can take up this role and repeat the performance of Kirsten ?

    Find an Indian who your project as your long term coach and get him in charge of the T20 team. In the meantime, hire someone else to coach the ODI and test teams till he is ready to take over.

    If you ask me, among Indians - Saurav Ganguly and among Foreigners - Stephen Fleming or Tom Moody.

    Wasn't it Sandeep Patil who gave a tremendous boost to the Kenyan cricket team?

    Guys, there is no guarantee that a big shot cricketer will make a good cricket coach. Some of the less sung cricketers have produced some of the best results.

    So keep people like Gavaskar, Kapil, Ganguly, Sachin, out of the picture. Focus beneath the cream.

    Ganguly's name is racked up not just becoz he was good player, becoz he taught india to win abroad. He has all the skills and talent to build a team.

    Why look abroad, when you have gem like ganguly at home ? Give him chance.

    Ganguly should be the head coach, we can hire others for technical aspects.
