Andrew Strauss

Andrew Strauss has resigned from the position of England’s director of cricket, following 3 and a half years in the job.

The 41-year-old had taken a reprieve in May, after his better half Ruth entered another period of treatment for cancer.

Andy Flower, who has taken his place, will proceed in an temporary role, before a full-time substitution is found.

Flower the England coach from 2009 to 2014, will proceed in his role until December with the aim of joining the England Lions in India in January.

A full-time arrangement is required to be made before England’s West Indies visit which starts in mid-January.

Meanwhile, Andrew Strauss will fit in a “flexible” position inside the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

He will at first help ECB CEO Tom Harrison in setting up the path for his successor, and from that point keep on counseling on different issues.
