Andy Flower quits ECB

Andy Flower parts ways with ECB after 12-year stay

Former England coach Andy Flower has called time on his 12-year stay with the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Flower was appointed England’s assistant to Peter Moores in 2007 and then took over the charge of England side in 2009.

The Zimbabwean then opted to work for the England Lions in 2014 and has finally decided to part ways with the ECB.

During his tenure as head coach, England achieved a lot of success. England's Test side were ranked No 1 in the world, they lifted T20 World Cup in 2010 and then won the Ashes in Australia in 2010-11.

"It's been a real privilege. 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," Flower said.

"It was wonderful to watch those young men take on that challenge successfully and have a great time doing it.

"The win in India in 2012-13 was a highlight too, to overcome some great players in tough spinning conditions was a special victory.

"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."
