Flintoff set to quit Test cricket

Player:A Flintoff
Event:Australia in British Isles 2009

DateLine: 15th July 2009

 

Andrew Flintoff looks set to announce his retirement from Test cricket according to reports.

 

Flintoff is reportedly set to hold a press conference at Lord's on Wednesday following a report in "The Sun" claiming he would quit Tests after the Ashes.

 

The all-rounder, who was a key protagonist in the 2005 triumph, has been battling to be fit for the second Test against Australia after complaining of soreness in his right knee.

 

Flintoff, who has been dogged by ankle and knee injuries in recent seasons, had a cortisone injection on Monday in a bid to help with the healing.

 

It appears the injuries have now taken their toll, and this has forced the 31-year-old to sacrifice five-day cricket to try to ensure his fitness for 50-over and Twenty20 international matches.

 

Flintoff has played 75 times in a career already spanning 11 years.
