Andrew Flintoff yet to prove his fitness for Headingley Test

Andrew Flintoff is yet to prove his fitness for the fourth Test in Headingley that start today. It seems Flintoff have struggled with knees while bowling in nets. Even Andrew Strauss acknowledged that the key alrounder is 100 percent fit.

Flintoff’s presence is very vital for England chance of regaining Ashes. England bowled magnificently in the second test and lead England to victory. In the just concluded third test, though he went wicket-less, excelled with the bat by top-scoring in England’s innings. He made vital 70 runs.

Andrew Flintoff’s condition would be discussed today afternoon and his opinion would also be on board along skipper and coach’s opinion. Skipper Strauss told they want to win either one of the two Tests and never would have defensive approach.
