Former England coach Andy Flower has signed up for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as a batting consultant for the Peshawar franchise. Flower has got the consent from the ECB for seeking a role in the PSL, as Flower still plays an integral in the English cricketing circles. Recently, he was in charge of the England Lions squad.

“I’ve been approached to do some batting coaching for Peshawar, one of the franchises in the new Pakistan Super League,” Flower told ecb.co.uk. “I’m looking forward to doing something different.” “I toured Pakistan a number of times as a player, and I think it’s really sad that we aren’t playing international cricket in Pakistan,” he said. “Of course there are good reasons for that but the sooner we get back playing in Pakistan the better.”

“I really enjoyed my tours anywhere in Asia and Pakistan was no different. We toured some fascinating places. Obviously the main cities but also we got out to Peshawar, we played a Test up there, we also played in Quetta, and I always found it fascinating observing another culture,” Flower added.

Speaking about getting the consent from England’s director of cricket Andrew Strauss, Flower said, “I’ve chatted with Andrew Strauss about whether that’s okay from an ECB perspective and he says it is on the basis that it’s good for our English coaches to get out and about amongst some of these Twenty20 franchise competitions, to learn what’s happening outside of the domestic game in England, to interact with some of the international coaches and players, and to bring some of that knowledge back into our game in England.”
