Ashes - Flower ponders Melbourne changes

England coach Andy Flower will meet with captain Alastair Cook and the selectors before deciding whether wholesale changes will be made for the final two Tests of the Ashes series.

With the series already won by Australia following the third Test in Perth, there have been calls in some quarters for a selection of senior players to be left out for the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.

Flower said there would not be any rash decisions made.

"The loss was only yesterday," he told BBC Sport. "I want to meet with our coaches, I need to meet with Alastair Cook.

"We need to decide whether we're merely focusing on these two games or looking further into the future and exposing other players. But we haven't had those meetings yet, we haven't had those discussions.

"I need to meet with the selectors as well and we'll get some clarity on those issues."

Graeme Swann, Matt Prior and Kevin Pietersen are among the players whose positions have come under the spotlight after below-par performances in the three heavy defeats which have seen England surrender the Ashes.
