Freddie and Harmy enjoy free booze cruise after Jamaica defeatFebruary 11th, 2009 - 2:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.11 (ANI): England cricket stars Andrew Flintoff and Steve Harmison went on a lavish free booze cruise just hours after Englands humiliating innings and 23 run Test defeat against the West Indies in Sabina Park, Jamaica. The pair lapped up luxury on a superliner after the West Indies bowled them out for an embarrassing 51.
They were flown back to the team hotel by helicopter after staying the night on board the six-star Silver Shadow, reports The Sun. Their trip came two years after Flintoff was rescued when he took a pedalo out to sea at 4am after a drunken night in St Lucia.
After Saturdays collapse to Englands third lowest score ever, fast bowler Harmison said: Ive never felt worse in my career. Everyone must take responsibility. But hours later Flintoff, 31, and Harmison, 30, were on the liner with guests including ex-England stars David Gower, Allan Lamb and Darren Gough. The pair stayed in one of the ships best cabins and enjoyed a leisurely Sunday morning off before flying back to Kingston by helicopter.
A spokesman for the players said last night: They were having time off after the game and did not drink over dinner on the boat. They had a couple of drinks before retiring.
An ECB spokesman added: We trust the players and would stress that we received no complaints about them. (ANI)
