FLINTOFF ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

Andrew Flintoff has announced his retirement from Cricket due to the injuries. The most popular England cricketer for a generation said he was sad and disappointed to be hanging up his boots. It leaves him plenty of time to use his Wimbledon Hospitality tickets.

FLINTOFF HOPES FOR COMEBACK

Andrew Flintoff says that he hopes to make 20-20 comeback for Queensland. The former Test all-rounder, who has not played since September, said: "I'm still getting a few twinges in the knee and can't move as well as I'd like to."

According to The Sun, Andrew Flintoff's comeback comment comes almost three weeks after the Queensland Bulls confirmed that they are hopeful of securing the England all-rounder for this season's KFC Twenty20 Big Bash in spite of his latest knee injury.

FLINTOFF RULES OUT AUSSIE LEAGUE

Andrew Flintoff is not prepared to discuss the possibility of playing domestic Twenty20 cricket in Australia until he is fully fit.

There have been reports that state sides Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria are lining up bids to sign him.

But his spokesman Myles Hodgson told BBC Sport: "Nothing is on the horizon. We are not talking to anyone until he starts playing for Lancashire again."

A return to county duty in late July or early August remains Flintoff's target.

FLINTOFF THE WRESTLER?

England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has said that he is "a big fan" of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) action and joked he could take up the sport once his cricket career ends.

Flintoff is his way back to fitness and hopes to play cricket again for England and Lancashire.

The 32-year-old along with his friends met WWE stars, including John Cena, Bret Hart, Randy Orton and Batista, at London's O2 last week.
