Anderson needs victory for Flintoff

James Anderson urged his team mates to lift their perfomances to win fifth and final test oval. He wants that victory to be dedicated to Andrew Flintoff who is playing is last Test match. Andrew Flintoff is declared fit and will be playing in Oval. Anderson wants to send Flintoff with the winning note that too Ashes victory.

Australian vice captain Michael Clarke has told that Australians would not play for a draw as that will help them retain Ashes. He told that in 50 odd Tests played, they only played for winning and never forced a draw. He would like to desperately win the fifth test match and by that lift Ashes.

Michael Clarke is very consistent so far in the current Ashes series. He has scored 445 runs at an average of 89 with two tons and a crisp 93. His overall Test average is 50 plus, which is the benchmark of the great player.
