Former England captain Andrew Flintoff out of retirement, playing in T20 Blast for Lancashire

MANCHESTER, England - Former England captain Andrew Flintoff has come out of retirement to play for Lancashire in the domestic T20 Blast competition.

The 36-year-old allrounder, who played 79 tests and 141 one-day internationals for England, retired in 2010 after a string of injuries but has been training with Lancashire, his old club, in recent months.

Flintoff tells the BBC "when I'm bowling it still hurts a bit, but I'm loving running into bowl and if I can take that into a game I might be quite dangerous."

Flintoff was a star of the England team that won the Ashes in 2005. He was captain when England was whitewashed in Australia in the 2006-07 series but was a member of the side that regained the urn in 2009.
