Giles takes over England limited overs side

11:26 am on 29 November 2012

Andy Flower is handing over responsibility for England's one day and Twenty20 cricket sides, with Ashley Giles named as head coach by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Flower will continue as England Team Director and will remain in charge of the test team but will take a back seat in limited-overs cricket after five years at the helm.

Giles, an England selector since 2008, will take charge of the side for the first time on the tour of India and New Zealand in January and February.
