Vettori endorses Fleming for Team India coaching job

January 17, 2011 11:20 IST

New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has said that Stephen Fleming would be ideal for the soon to be vacant Team India coaching position.

Fleming has been named as a front-runner to replace current Indian coach Gary Kirsten, once he steps down after the upcoming 50-over World Cup.

"I think he'd be a great coach. He'd be great for them," quoted Vettori, as saying.

"He's probably pretty similar to Gary Kirsten in his methods. It's worked well for India so it wouldn't surprise me at all," he added.
