Flower speaks out

Fantasy Bob reads that England coach Andy Flower says that he is 'not afraid' to change things following the poor performance in Abu Dhabi.

Flower said he was proud of the world-class cliches in the side, but the collapse against spin is the type of cliche he can do without.  He will be looking for something else for the next match.

These are the originally selected cliches who went down to a 72 run defeat on Saturday.
  • England in a spin
  • England on back foot
  • England lost in the desert
  • England have learnt how not to lose
  • Bell to bat higher
  • Bell to bat lower
  • Pietersen one innings off his best
  • Swan and Monty - meet the new spin twins
  • Strauss - Captain Confused
  • Anderson swings into action
  • England pluck defeat from jaws of victory

Flower said, 'Continuity of cliche has been one of our strengths in the past.  But we have to choose the cliches who can adapt to the circumstances.'

Cliche watchers can therefore look forward to the return to Test cricket of 'Bopara given another chance....'
