Stars can lose places to new players if they don’t stay hungry: Flower

London: England cricket team coach Andy Flower has warned squad members that they need to remain hungry or face losing their places to the next generation of players.

A daily quoted Flower, as saying: “If people aren’t hungry enough, then I don’t think they’ll keep up with the side – they’ll drop out or be dropped out.”

Flower’s warning comes after he saw 21-year-old Jonny Bairstow, the son of former England wicketkeeper David Bairstow, play a swashbuckling unbeaten knock of 41 against India in the Cardiff one-day international to take the home side to a series win.

“He played with amazing composure. Not many people can strike the ball as cleanly as that or are that talented. I liked the blend of boundary hitting,” Flower said.
