London, July 18 (ANI): All rounder Andrew Flintoff has admitted that he no longer has designs on becoming an England captain again and is simply focused on fulfilling his career as an all-rounder.

Flintoff makes his England Test return against South Africa at Headingley today after 19 months.

In an exclusive chat with Sir Ian Botham, he admitted that his priorities have changed.

Being captain is not something Im looking to do now, I just want to carry on with my game. I want to be a part of a winning England team; The Mirror quoted Flintoff, as saying.

Itd be nice to take a wicket with my first ball back! The ankle operation was a long time ago and I don”t feel it at all, he said.

There is obviously an expectation, but I cant build it up too much in my own mind. You had that more than anyone with people turning up at matches just to see Ian Botham, Flintoff added. (ANI)
