Giles confirmed that he will be in regular contact with Flower throughout this five-match series and then when the team move on for another three One-Day Internationals in New Zealand next month, as the pair plot the best use of England's resources in a hectic year which includes the chance to win the last ICC Champions Trophy on home soil before consecutive Ashes series, the a media report said.
Giles has started his coaching work with an inexperienced group of bowlers, as leaving Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad and James Anderson at home has left Steve Finn and Tim Bresnan to lead the attack, despite the doubts over their fitness and form respectively. This is one reason why Giles seemed apprehensive to play down expectations at his first press conference as England's One-Day coach.
Giles said England side is India to develop and find out more about the younger guys, and added that if at the end of it they lose the series and each player has moved on five per cent through the experience then they are doing their jobs.
Giles said his younger players are looking forward to the tough challenged posed by a strong Indian team at their home turf.
The comment is made just to make sure, that if England looses they have an excuse and if they win they can really celebrate... but the fact is this Indian team is equally inexperienced with all new faces, infact i would say that both the teams start on equal footing in terms of experience. Gambhir- Cook; Bell- Kholi; Kevin- Yuvraj; Morgan- Dhoni.. so on expereince these guys match each other, other than that all the indian players are also trying to find thier feet, infact with the current form, i would say Enlgand should fancy thier chance. but the thing is that the English bowling is noway near what Pakistan has, lacking in quality in spin and pace both (even when james and swann are there). Hence Indian batsman might find life much easier and hence this comment fearing that England might loose... so reality is not diff in experience, but difference in class when it comes to England bowling and Pakistan Bowling
