After a disastrous show in Australia, England coach, Andy Flower has been sacked by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), reported The Telegraph.

 

Flower was called to Lord’s for a meeting, on Thursday, by Paul Downton, the new manager of the English cricket team, who has been conducting a review of England’s horrific tour of Australia 2013-14.

 

It will be officially announced when England come home from Australia. Flower has coached England since 2009 in which time he has won the Ashes three times and led England to their first World Twenty20 title in his first year in charge.

 

England beat Australia 3-0 last summer in the home Ashes but succumbed to a humiliating 5-0 whitewash in the return series Down Under.
