Andy Flower sees new England era after Ashes debacle

Sydney: Coach Andy Flower says England's 5-0 loss to Australia in the Ashes cricket series may be the end of an era and there will be "more pain" before the team again experiences sustained success.

Flower told a news conference Monday he won't be quitting after England's series whitewash and he believes captain Alastair Cook is still the right man to lead the test team.
The ex-Zimbabwe test batsman said he is prepared to make the hard decisions necessary to allow England to rebuild after a series mauling which ended with its 281-run loss inside three days in the fifth test.
Flower wouldn't discuss the cases of individual players but his promise of a fresh start has been interpreted as suggesting the positions of some senior players, notably Kevin Pietersen, may be under threat.
