England may tour India sans FlintoffDecember 7th, 2008 - 2:42 pm ICT by ANI
Abu Dhabi, Dec.7 (ANI): England cricket coach Peter Moores has said that there is a possibility of all-rounder Andrew Flintoff skipping the tour to India, which was recently ravaged by a terrorist strike.
“I”m fairly confident everybody will go (to India) if the security report is okay. But it is a difficult situation and everybody sees things differently. The worry is that if somebody makes their choice, they get marginalized,” The Sunday Times quoted Moores, as saying.
“Fred [Flintoff] has had issues and it’’s fair to say Steve Harmison has as well. Freddie has been round the block and knows what he wants. In this instance, he quite rightly wants to take all the information and make his call. If he thinks he can”t [go] that will be a tough decision for him and it will be his decision,” Moores added.
Whether England win or lose the Test matches in India no longer matters. Whatever the outcome, they have, by stating that they intend to return there today’’s final security reports permitting secured a far bigger victory than any match can deliver. (ANI)
