FLOWER POWER.

Byline: DEAN WILSON

ANDY FLOWER has repaid the leap of faith taken by the ECB and hailed his team's magnificent achievement in Australia. The man who replaced Peter Moores two years ago has thanked England supremo Hugh Morris for giving him his chance to create memories of a lifetime.

Flower (below) said: "In 2009 there was an opportunity to take the coach's job, so Hugh Morris gave me the chance to do it, which was a bit of a leap of faith on his part.

"They were very special times to be in that changingroom, and very special times to pop out and sit on the grass out there in the middle, and have a drink together and talk together out there in the middle where the guys had battled it out. They are memories those guys and I will remember for the rest of our lives. "Back in England we won a series 2-1, which was special in its own right, but we are better side now than we were then.

"To come out and get a result as we have done here in Australian conditions is a much better achievement."
