The England team management informed reporters that Zimbabwe-born Duncan Fletcher has accompanied his ailing wife to South Africa, but will be back before the start of the third ODI.

While the entire team flew into this tourist state from Delhi last afternoon, Fletcher rushed to South Africa along with his wife from the national capital last night.

The team management, however, refused to divulge details of illness of Fletcher's wife.

She came to India towards the end of the second Test along with wives and friends of the English players .
