What is the best success of the former Zimbabwean cricketer and current coach of England Andy Flower? If you ask him, he will probably say about the two successive Ashes series victory. But the recent success of England in the home series against India has added a new value in the career of England cricket. England has not only make whitewash the top test ranked team India, but also they have pushed them from the top position. England is the top ranked test team this moment. After the test match, England again got victory against India in ODI match by 3-0 difference. In the same way, England crossed India in ODI ranking. But the coach of England has told the cricketers to be careful about the rest series of the current season. According to him, only one series can’t judge a team’s quality. England will have to keep the current performance same way.
According to Flower, if any player of the team feels very happy in his current success then it can become very tough for him to continue in his current form. So the coach has informed the fact in the beginning and made them careful. He warns that if any experienced or star player becomes unable to keep the current form well then he can have to go to out of the team. The coach said that the young players played very well in ODI cricket. So to get entered into the main squad all the players (young and experienced) must have to do struggle. In that case, the star players can lose their position to the young players.
Flowers thinks that if any player has no extra attention to win the match then he can easily be thrown away from the team. England is looking forward only at present. The past success is past. The present position is only the main thing. Flowers said, “Our view is to step forward and take challenge forgetting the past. If any person looks behind, he will not be able to prepare a plan for the future.”
From 14 October of this year, England will visit India to play 5 match ODI series. The condition of subcontinent is totally opposite. The England team could not play well in the last world cup tournament in the current year there. They were about to be eliminated from the group being defeated to Bangladesh and Ireland. Besides, in the India tour of 2008, England lost ODI series by 5-0 and test series by 1-0. So the English coach thinks that a great challenge is waiting for England in the India tour.
