Freddie Flintoff still feeling gloomy about Kanpur ODI loss

November 22nd, 2008 - 3:00 pm ICT by ANI  

Bangalore, Nov.22 (ANI): England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff was still angry last night at the injustice of Englands defeat.
All-rounder Freddie said the farcical conclusion of the third one-day international “left a bad taste in the mouth.”
Former players who insisted the regulations must be changed to allow a proper game of cricket supported him, reports The Sun.
Flintoff took three wickets to drag England back into the match in Kanpur on Thursday including having run-machine Yuvraj caught on the boundary.
But it came to nothing because bad light curtailed the match and left India as winners by 16 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method.
Flintoff said: “We gave it our all so to finish it like that left a bitter taste in our mouths. The lads were very down in the dressing room.
Former England coach David Lloyd, now a TV commentator, said the match should have started sooner. (ANI)
