Duncan Fletcher: Assurance from David Morgan

Recently, England did very bad in Australia. England lost both in Test and One day. So, many people are thinking that Duncan Fletcher should go as England coach. But David Morgan, chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, has assured him that he can stay until World Cup 2007.

Guardian reported:

David Morgan, chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, has given a categorical assurance that Duncan Fletcher will coach England in the World Cup despite the depression hanging over the team in Australia.


Although John Carr, the ECB's director of cricket, will arrive in Australia this week to conduct an "audit" of the disastrous Ashes tour, only a shock Fletcher resignation would prevent him leading England in the Caribbean.


Morgan, a staunch Fletcher loyalist, insisted: "Duncan Fletcher does have my backing and I am certain - I will say this categorically - that he will coach England in the World Cup. Beyond that depends on how Duncan feels, how we go in the World Cup. He has my support and the support of the England team."

What do you think? Should Duncan Fletcher resign or stay?
