    Andy Flower picked for book cricket XIs

    Andy Flower has quit first-class cricket and is now assistant to Peter Moores, England's coach after Duncan Fletcher quit during the World Cup.

    As a result, Flower thus becomes eligible for the all-star book cricket XI. Given his awesome batting and safe wicket-keeping, he edges out Ridley Jacobs from the one-day XI. I'm also tempted to include him in the test XI ahead of Jack Russell, since the team would have 5 bowlers.

    So the new teams, following Andy Flower's retirement and McGrath quitting cricket at the end of that whats-its-name tournament which involved 15 minnows, are:

    Tests: Mark Richardson, Michael Slater, Nasser Hussain, Damien Martyn, Graham Thorpe, Andy Flower (wk), Chris Cairns, Heath Streak (c), Cathryn Fitzpatrick, Glenn McGrath and Allan Donald.

    ODIs: Craig Wishart, Michael Slater/Nasser Hussain, Damien Martyn, Graham Thorpe, Andy Flower (wk), Michael Bevan (c), Chris Cairns, Heath Streak, Glenn McGrath and Allan Donald.
