image for Freddie Flintstone Injured Again
The new cricket holdall from Nike

England cricket ace Freddie Flintstone has pulled out of the test series against West Indies following yet another injury. The player's bank balance has suffered a tremendous blow due to his early withdrawal from the Plenty Plenty cricket league. The star is said to be too upset to play cricket for anything less than £100,000 per match.

"For me, it's all about the entertainment. Being somewhere special. The big crowds. And I can only afford all that if I get paid big money. English cricket sucks. I can get paid a fortune for bowling four overs of absolute shit. Then I can go out on the razz with my mates. So, if I can't do that then fuck it. I will stay at home instead."

The Plenty Plenty league has created a class of mega rich cricketers. Along with Flintstone there is KP Nuts, Ricky Pointless, Wayne Shawn and Masif Assood. They all earn huge sums of money for doing very little. However, unlike Flintstone the others do still try to play cricket for their national teams.

Latest score: Plenty Plenty 1000000-5 wickets declared (Pointless 500, Assood 250, Flintstone 0 retired hurt)
