Flower for England

Former Zimbabwean batsman Andy Flower has been appointed the new England coach to replace Peter Moores.

During his playing days for Zimbabwe, Flower's outstanding ability as a batsman made sure that the Zimbabwean team was a decent one and since he retired the team has been in a free fall.

Although he was caretaker coach in England's tour of the West Indies I still think he is still untested at this level of competition and he will not wait long to be tested as Australia will be touring England in the winter.

Before the Ashes series England will have played the West Indies and also the ICC World Twenty20 and so Flower will have some experience when England tries to regain the Ashes from Australia.

It seems like England likes these coaches from Zimbabwe but Flower should make a good coach because as a player he was very good in an average team. He could be the person to make the Ashes competitive and I wish him all the best.

Thanks Jay for the comment, I also hope that Flower will have success in his role as England coach. I always think that a strong English side is good for cricket.
