3. Duncan Fletcher

Duncan Fletcher had great successes as the coach of the English cricket team during 1999-2007. He helped England regain their supremacy in Tests in early 2000s. Under his guidance, England won series against Sri Lanka, West Indies, Pakistan & South Africa and also had a streak of eight consecutive victories in Tests. He also witnessed England’s first Ashes victory after 18 years in 2005.

However, he couldn’t reap the same success in ODIs for England and ultimately his association with England in 2007 ended. He then coached India during 2013-2015 and saw a splendid performance of nine consecutive series victory including the Champions Trophy in England. He proved to be a great assistance in nurturing the young Indian talent too.
