Flower of England

Whatever one's views on the composition of the England team, there can be little doubt that Andy Flower has played a blinder since he took over.

He gives every impression of combining the original mind of Fletcher with the technocratic approach of Peter Moores. And, if you throw in his truly outstanding international batting pedigree and experience of galvanising his old Zimbabwe side, it's clear that England, in a slightly roundabout way, have come across an outstanding coach.

A number of members of the eleven which triumphed in Bridgetown on Sunday are going to be around the top of the English game for a very long time. With what he has brought in a relatively short time in the job, you have to hope that Flower will be too.

His job is far from finished. In fact, in so many ways, it has only just begun.
