Have you seen the size of him and the way he bowls? It’s because of that.
Andrew Flintoff’s body can get through 30-odd overs in a Test match as easily as it can get through the eye of a needle.
We imagine that if you’re Andrew Flintoff, the impact on your joints when bowling feels like jumping off the garage roof while holding a big telly. He’s not built for fast bowling any more than an otter’s built for refrigerating food products.
Regardless of this, our official editorial stance about this news is ‘gutted’.
