The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has extended Duncan Fletcher's contract by another year after India's comprehensive victories in Chennai and Hyderabad against Australia. BCCI took the decision in the working committee meeting held in Mumbai.

Speculation were rife about Fletcher's future after he had lost 10 Test matches including a home series against England recently apart from 'whitewashes' in England and Australia.

Under Fletcher, India had lost 10 out of the 22 Test matches before the ongoing match in Mohali having won only eight. The only away Test win was against West Indies nearly two years back just when Fletcher had taken charge.
