Flintoff’s misery

Andrew Flintoff has confirmed in his updated autobiography the truth about how badly he got on with the coach Duncan Fletcher during his tenure as captain. “It was a case of two people who didn’t get on being thrown together for eight months of the year as part of the England cricket team,” he said. “We had completely different views on life; the relationship didn’t work and it came to an abrupt end after the World Cup in 2007.” Flintoff said he felt isolated trying to lead the side through the 2006/07 Ashes tour and remembered treading his bat in half in frustration after defeat in the second Test at Adelaide.
