Anderson says Proteas will dread Flintoffs returnJuly 17th, 2008 - 3:12 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 17 (ANI): England fast bowler James Anderson believes that South Africa will dread all-rounder Andrew Flintoff’’s return to Test cricket.
Flintoff, who has been out of international cricket for nearly 18 months, nursing ankle and side strain injuries, is expected to make the England line-up for the second Test against the Proteas at the Headingly cricket ground, which begins from Friday.
“It’’s similar to having Shane Warne in your team - the opposition don”t like it. He’’s got something about him. It’’s his presence in the team, The Sun quoted Anderson, as saying.
“Not many players get the chance to represent their country on the Test stage for 10 years. But Freddie has and that shows you just how important he is to England,” he added. (ANI)
