Former England spinner Ashley Giles is surprised at Andy Flower‘s decision to step down as Team Director of the national team.


When asked about him being the favorite to succeed Flower, Giles replied that he will be certainly applying for the post and hoped that England turn their fortunes around on the cricket pitch.


Giles also said that England’s biggest challenges currently would be the tour of West Indies and also the 2014 ICC World Twenty 20 in Bangladesh, and also added that selecting the 15-member squad for the latter tournament will be a big task.
