Carrot's right; this Fletcher book might be worth a squizz. Can't wait 'til it reaches the remainder bins and op shops.
The Fred Kennedys
Andrew Flintoff turned up to a practice session on the last Ashes tour 'still under the influence of alcohol' and 'in such a state that he could not throw properly' according to his coach, Duncan Fletcher, in his forthcoming autobiography, Behind the Shades.
Under The Influence
Ian Botham had an unhealthy influence on Andrew Flintoff and has long caused difficulties in the England set-up, according to England's former coach Duncan Fletcher in the latest extract of his autobiography, Behind the Shades.
Darrell Hair lost his temper and walked out of a meeting conducted by match referee Mike Procter on the evening of the fourth day of the infamous Oval Test, according to Duncan Fletcher, the former England coach.
In the latest extract from his autobiography, Behind the Shades, Fletcher also says he believed Hair was unfairly punished for his role in the incident.
Fletcher felt Hair's suspension by the ICC had set a wrong precedent. "[Billy] Doctrove backed him to the hilt but it was Hair who copped all the flak. That was unfair and doubtless it will mean that, from now on, umpires will not want to make the big decisions. That is not good for the game."
