Andy Flower takes a break from his England duties.

England have decided to rest team director Andy Flower for the one-day international against Ireland in Dublin later this month.

The 43-year-old has helped England to become the number one Test team in the world since becoming coach in 2009.

The Zimbabwean will now take a short break from his duties while assistant coach Richard Halsall takes on the role on a one-off basis.

"England team director Andy Flower will be rested from the Ireland match before joining the England squad ahead of the NatWest International T20 fixture against India on Wednesday, August 31," revealed an ECB statement.

England's meeting with Ireland will take place on Thursday, August 25.
