Former England captain Sir Ian Botham has said that the successor of departing England team director Andy Flower should bring enjoyment and flamboyance back to the game.

Botham believes that Flower's decision to step down from the England team is a fair yet a difficult one and wished him the best for the future with an appreciation for bringing the team into a 'golden era' along with former captain Andrew Strauss.

However, the Mirror reports that Botham said that it feels like the right time for Flower to step aside and let someone else take the team forward as the England set-up is in urgent need of a fresh and new approach to life on and off the field.

Stating that the siege mentality operated by England has been disappointing recently, Botham also said that he hopes that Flower's successor would bring enjoyment and flamboyance back into the game as cricket is about winning and entertaining, adding that he has been looking for more aggression and positivity about England's cricket.

Botham also said that he thinks Australia taught England more than a few lessons this winter, from the way they went about their cricket out in the middle, to the way they interacted with people once the play had finished.
