Andrew Strauss has stepped down as England’s director of cricket after three and a half years in the role.
The 41-year-old had taken a break in May after his wife Ruth entered a new period of treatment for cancer.
Andy Flower, who has covered for him, will continue in an interim role before a full-time replacement is found.
Strauss said 2019 is “potentially the most important the game has had in this country” with the World Cup and Ashes series on home soil.
