Coach Flower could be removed if ECB chooses to axe Strauss

London, Apr.17 (ANI): England team director Andy Flower may have to consider other employment options if Andrew Strauss were to lose the captaincy, reveals former skipper Tony Greig.

Greig believes everything should be done to avoid a repeat of the Peter Moores and Kevin Pietersen fiasco.

He told Cricinfo: “I think Andy Flower deserves the job. But if I were the ECB, I would write into the new coach’s contract a clause stating that should the captaincy change, it will be the prerogative of the new captain, in consultation with the ECB, to review his position. I say this because I feel strongly that the captain should always have a say who his coach should be.” (ANI)
