Former head coach Andy Flower leaves England Cricket after 12 years

Zimbabwe’s Andy Flower has left the ECB set-up after a long 12 year time. He was the head coach of England from 2009 to 2014. Former Zimbabwe captain led England Test side to the No. 1 position in the world.

England have won the World Twenty20 in 2010 – it was thier first men’s ICC tournament win ever – and three Ashes series under his coaching.

The 51-year-old stepped down from coach’s role after the disastarous 2012/13 Ashes in Australia. He also served as assistant to Peter Moores for two years.

“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,” said Andy Flower.

“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.”
