Who is cricket's Alex Ferguson?

News all over the world, especially the sports variety, is about Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement from ManU. Amazing record for 26 years at the club from the veteran. Hold on! I am not going to write about football now...the question that I wanted to ask you was who is cricket's version of SAF?

Quite a few names come to mind - Bob Woolmer, Duncan Fletcher, Intikhab Alam, John Wright and so on.
From the current crop, Gary Kirsten has the credentials to claim credit to the title. Twice he has coached countries to the No.1 position in tests, won the World Cup 2011 with India. Not something that others has achieved - only complaint is that he doesnt stick on to his position for a long time :(

In IPL, Stephen Fleming has done a remarkable job for Chennai SuperKings (winning IPL and Champions League) while Darren Lehmann has won the IPL twice for different teams (though his team has been struggling for the last 2 versions).

There is obviously no one who has gone on for so long but these are the few names that come to mind. What do you say?
