Jaipur: England coach Duncan Fletcher on Thursday said his team was focussed on the task ahead and was not distracted by the ongoing controversy over the inclusion of Virender Sehwag in the Indian squad for the first Test but reiterated that England will play in Mohali only if the match was recognised by the International Cricket Council."The players are professionals and are supposed to concentrate on the job. They were not distracted with any controversy," Fletcher told reporters after the English team carved out a three-wicket win against India 'A' in its lastfirst-class engagement before the first Test in Mohali, which starts on Monday.Praising Andrew Flintoff, who performed well both with the bat and the ball in the match, Fletcher said he had shown how dangerous a player he could be.
