Former Zimbabwe international and England coach Fletcher saw India beat the West Indies by eight wickets at the Oval on Tuesday to book their place in the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy.
He will be 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 spokesman said on Tuesday. “He will fly to Cape Town tonight, but he will be back for the game against Pakistan.”
