Andy Flower Renews Contract as England Cricket Team Director

May 3 (Bloomberg) -- Andy Flower renewed his contract as England cricket team director after seeing the side win two Test series against Australia and move up the international rankings since he started the role.

Flower took the post on a permanent basis in 2009, and England has risen to third from sixth in the International Cricket Council Test rankings. It’s also gone up one place to fifth in the one-day game.

In 2009, England defeated Australia 2-1 to regain the Ashes and in 2010-11 won an Ashes series in Australia for the first time since 1987 with a 3-1 victory. Last year England won the World Twenty20 title.

Flower’s contract is on continuous basis, rather than having a fixed term. The England and Wales Cricket Board announced its renewal in an e-mailed release.

Former Zimbabwe captain Flower, 43, was quoted as saying he remained “fully committed to developing the side and ensuring we are in a position to realize our objective of becoming the No. 1 side in the world.”

England faces Sri Lanka, India and Ireland later this year.
