I have a feeling this appointment will be permanent before the end of the summer. Quite how flower has failed in everything he has done for about 6 years and is still not only there, but giving responsibilities of increasing importance, destroys my belief that things will change .

The article saying ramps could take over flower......OK. so he's failed to develop a single batter, but he gets a promotion.

The ECB cutting player development? Fair enough as i guess there has not been to much player development over the last few years.

Even so, on the formbook, we can expect at least a couple more embarrassing twists and turns to its handling of the matter. And as usual, it will get away with it. But when you consider the serial ineptitude, cynicism and moral wimpiness, it really is a continuing marvel that the ECB itself has never faced a charge of bringing the game into disrepute.


I'd have them on said charge in about 5 minutes flat

they should be put immediately on the sporting offences register
