Andrew Flintoff arrived in India bristling with confidence that he can lead England to success in the Champions Trophy.
We don't fear anything. We go out to express ourselves, said the England skipper. We are confident and believe we can beat anyone. My fitness is good ten and a half weeks after the operation. Everything I've asked of it so far it has responded well, he added.
Lack of match practice was not a concern either, Flintoff said. I've been batting at home in the nets and have got the cobwebs out. It's not something I'm worried about. I'm not a player who feels I have to bat day in day out.
But the burly all-rounder is not expected to risk bowling in the opening matches. Flintoff said he had been working at about 60 percent in the nets back home.
Flintoff was first given the captaincy on England's tour of India in February when Michael Vaughan broke down.
