Sorry to use the F word – but how bloody good is Flintoff bowling nowadays? And who would have thought it? When he first rolled over his arm for England, I admit I did think “Oh. Dear.” Even then, he generated reasonable pace – but now, his run-up is spot on, he bowls a yorker at will, a nasty bouncer, reverse-swing, genuine-swing…he’s quite something else. My colleage confidently said he was the “best bowler in the world” recently. It’s becoming hard to disagree, now.
Sorry for not putting up a day 4 page for you reprobates to chat on, but you seemed to be ok on the tea page!
