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
