London - India coach Duncan Fletcher will fly to South Africa on Tuesday following the death of his mother, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced.
Former Zimbabwe international and England coach Fletcher saw India beat the West Indies by eight wickets at the The Oval on Tuesday to book their place in the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy.
He will now fly to Cape Town to attend his mother's funeral before flying back for India's final Champions Trophy group game against arch-rivals Pakistan in Birmingham, central England, on Saturday.
"Duncan Fletcher's mother passed away on Sunday," a BCCI spokesperson said on Tuesday. "He will fly to Cape Town tonight, but he will be back for the game against Pakistan."
