British- Zimbabwean cricket coach and former cricketer, Andy Flower has been named St. Lucia Zouks head coach for the 2020 Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

The Zouks were last month purchased by KPH Dream Cricket Private Limited, the consortium that owns Indian Premier League (IPL) side Punjab XI Punjab.

Flower, 51, was also recently appointed as King XI’s assistant coach. He worked as assistant coach for the England cricket team prior to becoming head coach in 2009.

During that stint which ended in 2014, England won the Ashes series home and away, the T20 World Cup in 2010 and became the number one ranked Test side in the world in 2011.

Up and until October last year, Flower was at the England Cricket Board as technical director of elite cricket. After stepping down from that position he coached Maratha Arabians to the Abu Dhabi T10 title, and he is currently coaching Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The 2020 Hero CPL will take place between Aug. 19 and Sept. 26.
