An opening batsman with a solid technique, Fletcher is one among the few cricketers to return from the Island nation of Grenada. Possessing an additional ability to stay wickets, he was thrown into the West Indies squad without much first-class experience. As is that the case with such talented youngsters, he impressed within the initial few essays, one being the above mentioned run into Australia within the T20 World Cup , but flattered to deceive later. He earned his million participating within the Stanford T20 series, but currently finds himself out of favour from the West Indies selectors.

Fletcher ran rampant within the inaugural edition of the CPL, slamming 238 runs in 7 innings, finishing the preliminary round because the leading run-getter. He was called back to the West Indies T20I team after a near three year hiatus for the away series against New Zealand. He made some substantial contributions, which were enough to stay him on the international radar despite the towering presence of Chris Gayle and Dwayne Smith.
