Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff is to retire from test cricket after the Ashes series.
A great shame for English Cricket, Freddie is one of the true greats!

|Quoting KHI747 (Reply 3):|
His bowling average (32.5runs/wicket) is actually higher then his batting average of (31.69runs/innings).That bowling average is extremely mediocre for someone who is so highly regarded.He has never taken 10 wickets or more in a Test and has only taken 5 or more wickets in an innings on 2 occasions in his entire carrer!

Guess what, Flintoff has only taken 5 wkts in a 1st class innings 3 times in his career. For him to have done it twice at Test level suggests he tries his damndest for the country
|Quoting KHI747 (Reply 6):|
But if you still look at the improved bowling average of 29.9,thats a very mediocre average for someone considered as a strike bowler.

the go to man when you wanted the dangerman removed and he did that job well
