Andy Flower quit as head coach of
England s Test team yesterday in the
wake of a humiliating Ashes white-
wash by Australia, ending a five-year
reign in which he oversaw the most
successful period in the national side s
The Zimbabwean said in a statement
released by the England and Wales
Cricket Board that it was time for the
team "to rebuild with a new set of val-
ues and goals" and "start with a clean
Flower took charge in 2009 and led
England to three straight Ashes series
wins against its fiercest rival, and also
the World Twenty20 title in 2010.
Under Flower, England has been top
of the rankings in all three formats---
Test, One-Day and T20.
However, his position came under
huge scrutiny after England slipped to
an abject 5-0 Test series defeat Down
Under over the last two months. In the
immediate aftermath of the series,
Flower spoke of it being the "end of
an era" although he pledged his com-
mitment to staying in charge.
"Following the recent very disap-
pointing Ashes defeat, it is clear to me
that this is now time for England cricket,
led by (captain) Alastair Cook, to rebuild
with a new set of values and goals,"
Flower said in the ECB statement.
"The opportunity to start with a
clean slate and begin to instil methods
to ensure England cricket is moving in
the right direction will be an incredibly
exciting challenge for someone but I
do not feel like I am in a position to
undertake that challenge."
Flower will remain as a selector and
is exploring other possible roles within
The 45-year-old Flower---a quiet,
unassuming character who led with an
understated authority---handed over
responsibility of coaching England s
ODI and T20 sides to Ashley Giles in
December 2012, leaving him to focus
entirely on Test cricket.
He said in the statement that his
replacement "needs to be responsible
across all formats in order to positively
influence the rebuilding process," which
potentially makes Giles a strong can-
didate to succeed Flower in the test
pleted a clean sweep of victories
over England in all formats when
it won the second Twenty20
cricket international by 8 wickets
yesterday to clinch the three-
match series 2-0.
After winning the Ashes Test
series 5-0 and the five-match one-
day international series 4-1, Aus-
tralia added to England s summer
of misery by following up its 13-
run win in the first T20 with a
comprehensive win which clinched
the T20 series in two games.
Captain George Bailey made 60
not out from 28 balls and
Cameron White 57 in an unbroken
78-run partnership which guided
Australia past England s paltry
130-9 with 5.1 overs remaining.
White was 41 not out, having
set the hectic tempo of the Aus-
tralian innings, when he was joined
by Bailey at 53-2. He was then
outdone by his captain who com-
pleted a half century from 24 balls,
with five fours and three sixes,
while White took his score from
41 to 53.
"Another great performance
with the ball, I thought, that really
set the game up," Bailey said. "I
thought it was a pretty all-round
good performance with us
Bailey said Australia s perform-
ances in all formats were being
fueled by rising confidence.
"It s a magical juice (confi-
dence)," he said. "I think it makes
such a big difference.
"The greatest thing about that
is we re seeing it from guys who
are coming in for their first game.
James Muirhead, I thought bowled
absolutely beautifully in his second
really good player and hopefully
a really good team environment."
England s defeat was made
more bitter by the fact it won a
toss which seemed influential and
chose to bat first on a dry, firm
pitch at the Melbourne Cricket
Regular wicket falls ensured its
innings never gained momentum
and Jos Buttler s 22 from 27 balls
was the highest individual score
in a feeble collective effort.
Michael Lumb, Joe Root, Tim
Bresnan and captain Stuart Broad,
who was the not out batsman, all
made 18 and Alex Hales 16 but
no England batsman was able to
take the decisive or dominating
role the innings demanded.
"We re disappointed with the
way we played," Broad said.
"Sometimes you have to give cred-
it to your opposition. Australia
outplayed us fantastically today.
"The two needless run-outs
hurt us in the middle which cost
us getting a decent score."
Broad wore the haunted expres-
sion seen often on the face of cap-
tain Alastair Cook during the Test
and One-day series.
"It s been a long tour, a long
100 days in Australia," Broad said.
Josh Hazlewood bowled
superbly for Australia and, after
removing openers Lumb and
Hales, he returned to dismiss Bres-
nan and James Tredwell with suc-
cessive balls in the last over to
finish with 4-30. He was man of
Muirhead s 1-17 and Mitchell
Starc s 1-19 in his first T20 for
Australia in more than a year were
also outstanding four-over efforts
which further shackled England.
