Flintoff Sees Horses Backside From Stable Door

Andrew Flintoff says he will be available for England's one-day and Twenty20 matches for the foreseeable future, once he returns to fitness.

Only a couple of weeks ago this would have brought sighs of relief from England's suffering ODI fans, today though, after defeating Australia, Sri Lanka and South Africa in a row, Freddie's chances of a quick return to the England ODI/20-20 may be looking a bit less certain.

Flintoff, and Kevin Pieterson, look to have a fight on their hands to regain a team place in the short form of the game, both of the injured England players have less than stellar records in one day cricket, and with rising stars such as Eoin Morgan, and dare we even say Owais Shah (pray it's not a flash in the pan), looking to cement a regular slot, Flintoff may not find that an instant return to the national side is on the cards.

Flintoff is at the moment recovering from his 327th consecutive injury, when he recovers, he says it shouldn't be long until he reaches the milestone of 'most injury prone England cricketer ever.'
