Flintoff back for Lancashire after retirement
Andrew Flintoff said he "loved" making his county cricket comeback for Lancashire on Sunday, four years after retiring from the game.
The former England all-rounder did not bat in a Twenty20 Blast fixture at Worcestershire but he took two for 36 with the ball as Lancashire (229 for four) won by 50 runs.
"Apart from getting donged for 2 6`s by a couple of cheeky kids, loved it," the 36-year-old said on his Twitter account.
Flintoff quit cricket in 2010 after the previous year`s Ashes series success against Australia, having played in 79 tests, 141 one-dayers and seven Twenty20 internationals.
He made 80 first-class appearances for Lancashire and has been training with the county since the northern winter.
"It`s something I never thought I`d say, that I played in the same team as Andrew Flintoff. It was a great experience and he did pretty well," said Lancashire team mate and England one-day international Jos Buttler.
"He`s a legend of English cricket and you`ve got to pinch yourself that you`re playing in the same team as him."
