Andy Flower showers words of praise on `resilient` England

Johannesburg: England coach Andy Flower had words of praise for his `resilient` side after they beat Australia in a thrilling 14-run win in the first Test at Trent Bridge.

Although Flower was happy with his team`s performance, he did not think that it was easy to get a 5-0 England sweep or a 10-0 sweep come the end of back-to-back Ashes in Australia in January.

The coach said that the first Test was a good example that the remainder of the series would be a tough fight, adding that it would have taken something out of all the players involved, while calling it a sensational game.

Flower also said that Stuart Broad, unlike any other batsmen, had the right to wait for the umpire`s decision and therefore it was not necessary for him to walk off after being adjudged not out.
