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.

Queensland Cricket Chief Executive Officer Graham Dixon had said then that the Bulls would still keenly monitor Flintoff’s progress, and hoped that he would be fit to join the team at the end of the year.

“We are that he is continuing his rehabilitation with Lancashire and are acutely aware that this will be his priority for the immediate future. We know that Andrew has been the object of some interest from a number of states, including us, and that he has publicly expressed a desire to play in the Big Bash,” said Dixon.

“But at the moment, he is still working on his recovery. We”re encouraged by the progress of our talks at this point in time, and will continue to keep the lines of communication open with his management team,” he added
