Andy Flower is the head coach of Lucknow franchise. He has a lot of coaching experience and was associated with Punjab Kings for few seasons. He will be serving the Lucknow based team in IPL 2022.
The announcement of his appointment was made after getting the permission from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as the board had restricted the new teams from making any declarations yet.
Speaking of his appointment, Flower sounded excited.
“I am incredibly excited to be joining the new Lucknow franchise and I am very grateful for the opportunity. Since my very first tour to India in 1993, I have always loved touring, playing and coaching in India,” stated Flower.
“The passion for cricket in India is unrivalled and it is a real privilege to lead an IPL franchise and I am looking forward to working closely with Dr Goenka and the Lucknow team. I will relish the challenge to build something meaningful and successful with the Lucknow franchise, I am looking forward to meeting the management and staff when I visit Uttar Pradesh in the New Year,” he added.
