Andrew Flintoff this morning

Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff returns to the England cricket team for the Second Test against South Africa today, and will open the batting, take the new ball, and, likely as not, bring the refreshments out during the drinks interval.

Flintoff, who has been out for eighteen months with an injury, makes his return to bolster an England XI that have struggled to find the killer instinct with which to finish teams off when they get into a winning situation.

The Lancashire captain will certainly provide that, and has been promoted to opening batsman in order to 'get a few runs on the board'.

Flintoff will also bowl first, because the other bowlers aren't up to much. Indeed, Flintoff may even bowl from both ends, and take any catches that become available, no matter where on the pitch they crop up.

England captain Michael Vaughan summed it up when he said:

"We've been looking forward to Freddie returning. Now we can all sit back and let him do his stuff. He's the only chance we've got, quite frankly."
