Lucknow appoints Andy Flower as their head coach for Ind-T20 League 2021
Andy Flower is all set to coach the new Lucknow franchise
Ever since it was confirmed that Lucknow will have their own team in the upcoming Indian T20 League, the news and information regarding the franchise just kept on coming. Previously it was heard that the franchise has roped in KL Rahul and Rashid Khan as two of their players but nothing has been confirmed yet. However, what can be said with absolute confirmation is that Andy Flower is all set to become the head coach of this new franchise.
The Zimbabwean has vast coaching experience. He was associated with the Punjab franchise in the last season and thus has the experience of working with KL Rahul, who can very well be the captain of this side. Flower’s addition is a big plus point for this new franchise. He is a screwed tactician and has immense success when it comes to coaching. He is one of the reasons behind the rise of England as a team in the 2010’s. He had a chance of joining the Pakistan Cricket team but the 53-year-old declined as he wanted to continue his association with franchise cricket.
“Andy Flower has been around for a long time. He has a solid reputation as a T20 coach, having been around the world coaching various franchises. He brings with him some rich Indian T20 League experience as well and knowledge about these conditions. He seemed to be the right choice for Lucknow”, sources told TOI.
There were other coaches in the race like Gary Kirsten, Ashish Nehra and others but the Sanjeev Goenka franchise has finally decided on one name. There however is no information on the Ahmadabad franchise. The reason being that they are not cleared to participate in the Indian T20 League as the board has found out that they are associated with a betting app. The problem is expected to be solved soon and we will have more information about them very soon.
