Former England coach Duncan Fletcher will take over as India's new cricket coach from South African Gary Kirsten, the country's board (BCCI) said on Wednesday. 

The 62-year-old Fletcher, who has signed on for two years, will start with India's tour of West Indies in June after Kirsten turned down an extension to his three-year contract following India's World Cup victory. 

The former Zimbabwe captain coached England to Ashes success in 2005.  

India will play a Twenty20 international, five one-day internationals and three Tests in their tour of West Indies.
