Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff MBE (born 6 December 1977) is a broadcaster, TV panelist and former England international cricketer, who played all forms of the game. Playing primarily for Lancashire, Flintoff was one of the sports leading all rounders, serving as a fast bowler, middle order batsman and talented slip fielder. Flintoff was consistently rated by the ICC as being among the top international all-rounders in both ODI and Test cricket. Flintoff later in his career played for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, and Brisbane Heat [1] in the Big Bash League.

Following his debut in 1998, he became an integral player for England, and was England’s “Man of the Series” during the successful 2005 Ashes series. He later served as both captain and vice-captain of the team. However, he suffered regular injuries throughout his international career, often due to his heavy frame and bowling action. During the period 2007–09 he played in only 13 of England’s 36 Test matches, but nevertheless remained a core member of the England squad, being selected whenever available. On 15 July 2009, he announced his retirement from Test cricket at the conclusion of the 2009 Ashes series, on 24 August, and although he made himself available for future commitments in One Day International and Twenty20 International matches, it was reported on 7 September 2009 that he had developed deep vein thrombosis after surgery to his knee.[2]

On 16 September 2010, he announced his retirement from cricket.[3] He then had one professional boxing engagement on 30 November 2012 in Manchester, beating American Richard Dawson on a points decision.[4]

In May 2014, Flintoff came out of retirement after five years to play Twenty20 cricket for Lancashire again, before being signed by Brisbane Heat to play in the Australian Big Bash League for the 2014–15 season. After a poor season with the Heat, he announced his second and final retirement.

Since his retirement, Flintoff has been involved with numerous projects, including designing his own range and becoming the face of fashion brand Jacamo, won the first series of the Australian version of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, and has been part of the Sky One sports based comedy panel show A League of Their Own. He now presents ITV game show Cannonball, which debuted on 2 September 2017.
