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.
“Andy Flower, who has covered the role for the last four months, will continue in his interim capacity until December…” A few years after presiding over the implosion of English cricket, and end of our most exciting ever batsmen, KP,he’s creeping back in https://t.co/bDJ933O2J9

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.
Very sad to see that Andrew Strauss has now stepped down as Director of England Cricket. He and his family are going through a very tough time. Sending best wishes and every ounce of support.
