A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: I would give anything to play cricket again, says Andrew Flintoff

Flintoff still reminisces about the best moments of his international career

Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has admitted that he is willing to give up everything he has to represent his country once again.

Flintoff, who has been training extremely hard over the past couple of months for his much-awaited professional boxing debut, stated that he missed everything about representing England on the field.

The Telegraph quoted Flintoff as saying: “I’d swap everything I have now to play cricket again.”

When asked if there was one exact moment he would like to relive of his illustrious international career, Flintoff said: “I’d like my last one again.”

The England all-rounder was then asked why he had not chosen the night after winning the Ashes series against arch-rivals Australia, and Flintoff replied: “No. I don’t think I could do that night again – I’ve not got it in me. But that last day… it went by so quickly. I don’t remember much about it except getting pretty emotional with my family after the game.”

Flintoff also noted that cricket had become much more professional compared to a few years ago.

“My first three years at Lancashire… well, things weren’t as professional as they are now,” Flintoff added. “There were pints after play every night and I’d even have a cigarette from time to time. But now it’s all ice-packs and protein shakes. We’ve got to be careful that cricket doesn’t get like football.”
