Fletcher was Zimbabwe's first-ever One Day International captain, leading them to their famous victory at the 1983 Cricket World Cup over Australia, winning the Man of the Match award for his individual performance.

Fletcher also took Zimbabwe to victory in the 1982 ICC Trophy.

As coach, Fletcher helped the England cricket team achieve famous series victories away to Sri Lanka, Pakistan and South Africa between 2000-2004.

In 2004 England won an English record 8 consecutive tests, beating New Zealand 3-0 and West Indies 4-0 at home respectively, before winning the first test in South Africa.

His most famous and largest achievement however came in September 2005 he became the first coach of the English team to win an Ashes series for 18 years when England secured 2-1 victory over Australia.
