Flower stated that he has not pursued the position of head coach for Team India and has no plans to do so, citing contentment with his current role in franchise coaching.

“I haven’t applied. I won’t be applying. I am happy with my involvement in the franchise game at the moment,” Flower said in the press conference after RCB’s defeat in the Eliminator of IPL 2024.

The left-handed batter represented his nation in 266 international matches, accumulating a total of 11,580 runs, including 16 centuries and 82 half-centuries.
