Former English all-rounder Andrew Flintoff needs no introduction to cricket. He was surely one of the finest cricketers England has seen especially in the all-round criteria. Flintoff was good with the bat and excellent with the ball. He was one of the main faces who helped England regain the Ashes after so many years back in 2005. That series was played in England and after some dramatic 5 test games, England won the Ashes 2-1. Flintoff had a remarkable series.
He was the third highest runs getter for England. He was the leading wicket taker for England. His total score in the series was 402 and his number of wickets was 24. Flintoff also played T20 cricket as well though it was not much because soon he took retirement.
Flintoff played for the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League as well. In one of the games against Hobart Hurricanes, Flintoff was standing at the boundary when the Aussie commentators took him on the line. The request was for a song from Freddy.
Flintoff sun Elvis Presley’s al time class when they get old. Flintoff made sure that he copies the singing style of Elvis. He did well to be honest. At some parts during his performance the commentators could not control their laugh as well.
Flintoff sun the whole song and the best part is that he was fielding as well while he was singing. He was patrolling at long on. A shot was played towards him which he fielded as well but he did not stop singing. After that a six went over his head while he was singing.
Flintoff is indeed a great sportsman. Most of the cricket fans don’t know that after taking retirement from cricket he is now into professional boxing. He has contested a couple of time so far. In a recent interview Flintoff has said that he wants to continue going this way. He feels that boxing is his next destination. He has the skill and talent in him to do well in this sports just like cricket.
