London: Nov 28, 2012

Former cricketer Ashley Giles was on Wednesday appointed as the coach of England for Twenty20 and One-Day International formats, whereas Andy Flower will cotinue as the director and coach for the Test side.

According to a statement released by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB): “Andy Flower will remain as England Team Director and will continue to be responsible for the preparation and playing strategies for the England men’s cricket teams supported by Ashley Giles.”

“The change in structure will provide a more efficient and sustainable use of coaching resources, ensuring that both coaches have an opportunity to prepare thoroughly for each series as well as interacting more regularly with other important areas of England cricket,” the statement added.

The ECB said, “Andy Flower will have accountability for the results of England cricket and will continue to tour with the England Test side during both home and away series but will no longer be responsible for the day to day leadership of the England ODI and T20 sides.”

“As England ODI and T20 Head Coach Ashley Giles will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the England ODI and T20 teams, and will be accountable to Andy Flower for the results of these teams.”

“Giles will report directly to the England Team Director and together they will develop playing strategies to move England cricket forward in all formats of the game,” the statement read.
 
The ECB informed on Twitter, “Giles will take charge of the side for the first time on the tour of India and New Zealand in Jan & Feb before the ICC Champions Trophy.”
