Indian skipper MS Dhoni praised coach Duncan Fletcher and credited him for the team's success as India reached the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

“Fletcher knows the basics of cricket really well. The small things he can spot in every player is very important. We are going through a phase where there aren't many senior players and the pressure is very less. He loves the fact that the team is doing pretty well,” Dhoni said.

Fletcher had replaced Gary Kirsten as the team's coach and was criticised after the team failed on successive tours of Engand and Australia.
