Andy Flower Breaks His Bond With England cricket

The former head coach of England Andy Flower who served the country for 12 years with distinction in various roles has decided to leave the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Earlier, in 2007 May, Flower was first named as an assistant coach to Peter Moores, a replacement of Matthew Maynard. In 2009, he took over the control of being the head coach from Moores. He had been coaching the England Lions Squad since 2014.

England won the Ashes for the first time in Australia under his tenure and also defeated their arch-rivals in two Ashes series’ at home. In 2011, England went on to take the top spot in test rankings after defeating India and also hosted the World T20 trophy in 2010.

“The Ashes’ victory in 2010-11 stands out. It’s difficult to win in Australia, and to do it so comprehensively was a really proud moment in my coaching career. The win in India in 2012-13 was a highlight too. To overcome some great players in tough spinning conditions was a special victory.” – Andy Flower said.

“So was the T20 World Cup win in 2010. The way we played our cricket, with such freedom and aggression, really was fun to be part of.” – Flower added.

Flower expressed his joy off the field and, apart from the success on it, felt grateful for the support he received.

“When people place their trust in you like that it gives you a tremendous sense of confidence and I will always remember that. I’d like to thank the captains I worked with longest, Alistair Cook and Andrew Strauss, for their commitment and friendship over the years. It’s been a privilege to work with all the players. Sometimes, in high-pressure environments, as a coach and a mentor you hold a very responsible position.” – Flower said.
