Challenge for Grant

Karachi: Pakistan's newly-appointed batting coach Grant Flower has described his new assignment as a “big challenge” and said that he was looking forward to convincing Umar Akmal and Shahid Afridi to do away with their habit of throwing away good starts.

“There is pressure but I look at this job as a big challenge… But there is also a feeling that if I succeed, the rewards are great and Pakistan cricket will move forward a lot,” Flower said.

“My main focus right now is to ensure that there is improvement in batting and fielding departments before the World Cup, which is an important event for us,” he said.
