BRISBANE: Coach Andy Flower's skin surgery to remove a melanoma had sent a scare through the England team, skipper Andrew Strauss said on Sunday.
Flower missed the second and third days' play of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane to have a melanoma removed from his right cheek.
“All of us have had a bit of a scare on it. We did get tested recently but we may need second opinions on that,” said Strauss.
“It does put everything into perspective and how quickly Andy had to get this stuff done showed that's not something to be messed around with.”
Routine not upset
Strauss said Flower's enforced absence did not greatly upset England's team routine during the first of five Ashes Tests at the Gabba.
“I don't think it made a huge amount of difference, to be honest, probably the dressing room was a bit more light-hearted while he wasn't there,” he quipped. — AFP
