What Grant Flower Said
Flower while recalling the incident said, “I remember one incident in Brisbane, during the Test, at breakfast I tried to give him a bit of batting advice, not that my career was anywhere near his regarding stats, as he is the highest scorer in Pakistan Test cricket.
“He didn’t take kindly to my advice and brought a knife to my throat, with Arthur sitting alongside, who had to intervene. Yeah, it’s been interesting but that’s part of coaching. It makes it a hell of a journey, and I’ve really enjoyed it. I’ve still got a lot to learn, but I’m very fortunate to be in the position I am.”
