The former Zimbabwean captain and now the coach of England Lions side, Andy Flower has decided to coach the Peshawar Zalmi side in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as he has been given the green signal from the England Cricket Board (ECB) and Andrew Strauss.
Former England captain Andrew Strauss, who is now the Director of England Cricket, has said that Flower has to go outside England and should learn what is happening outside England. He said that the experienced of Flower will help England Cricket eventually.
Flower said that he has been hired as the batting consultant by the Peshawar side and he is already looking forward to this different experience. He also said that it is sad that the International Cricket is not being played in Pakistan but there is a reason.
The 47-year-old coach also said that he hopes the International Cricket will return to Pakistan soon. His brother Grant Flower is already working as the batting consultant of the Pakistan team and Zimbabwe had also toured Pakistan earlier this year.
Pakistan had not been visited by any International team since the 2009 Sri Lankan team attack in Lahore and the league will also be held in United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is expected to be a good sign for Pakistan Cricket and fans.
