(REUTERS) – Former England coach Andy Flower said on Saturday that he was stepping down from working with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after 12 years.Zimbabwean Flower coached England to Ashes glory three times between 2009 and 2014, with England reaching number one in the test rankings during his five-year spell in charge as well as clinching a surprise World T20 triumph in 2010.For the last five years, Flower, 51, has coached England’s second-tier Lions team, but will now leave the ECB.“It’s been a real privilege,” he said in a statement. “The Ashes victory in 2010-11 stands out. It’s difficult to win in Australia, and to do it so comprehensively was a really proud moment in my coaching career.“I will still be based in England and I will continue to watch English cricket very keenly — it has a very bright future.”ECB managing director, Ashley Giles, praised the work Flower had done during his time in England.“Andy moves on with every best wish from all of us at ECB for his outstanding contribution to the English game over the last 12 years,” Giles said in a statement.“It has been a pleasure working with Andy, who sets such high standards of professionalism and preparation for the teams he leads. I have no doubt he will enjoy further success in the years to come.”

The Aam Aadmi Party has ruled out an alliance with the JJP for the upcoming Assembly elections in Haryana, a party leader said Wednesday. AAP senior leader Gopal Rai said the State unit has been asked to prepare a report on the political scenario in Haryana. “After the Lok Sabha elections, we analysed the political situation and we have decided to contest the upcoming elections without forming any alliance in the state,” he told reporters. The Assembly elections in Haryana are due in October 2019. The Aam Aadmi Party and the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) fought the elections together on all 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana. The AAP fought on four seats while the JJP on six. However, there was a clean sweep by the BJP on all the constituencies. The JJP was launched last year by former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala’s grandson Dushyant Chautala, following a power struggle in the state’s main opposition Indian National Lok Dal.

In delivering his Easter message, the bishop says there are three points to be learnt from the Resurrection of Christ. He says “God gave His only Son for us even though we did not ASK FOR IT or DESERVE IT or REALIZE that we needed it”.Bishop Boys remarked that “At the time of Jesus’ life the human race could never imagine what it is that He came to bring. Now we know, and we thank the Heavenly Father for this great Feast of the Resurrection which we celebrate.”He says this is expressed in God’s loving intention through giving us His son whose purpose was to Live, to Preach, to Teach, to die and to Rise again and ascend to His father. Bishop Boyd says this is symbolic of the True Nature of Love and human life itself. In reference to the life of Jesus, he says his dying conquered sin and death and its power over us, allowing us to have forgiveness, newness of life and a constant chance to start over whenever we stumble.Story by: Kimberly Ramkhalawan#MagneticMediaNews#findtruemeaningofEaster#BishopLaishBoydEasterMessage read more
