Flower calls for rule change
- From the section Cricket
England coach Andy Flower says the regulation on when to stop play because of bad light should be changed after the umpires took the players off at the end of the final Ashes Test.
Play was stopped at 19:36 BST on Sunday, halting England's victory push with just 21 runs needed from four overs and denying the hosts a probable 4-0 victory.
Flower said the description used to decide if play continues should not be whether it is "dangerous" to do so, but whether "the contest between bat and ball is reasonable and fair".
The England coach also brushed aside speculation that he might replace outgoing managing director of England cricket Hugh Morris.
