Following his debut in 1998, he became an integral player for England, and was England’s “Man of the Series” in the 2005 Ashes. He later served as both captain and vice-captain of the team.
He retired from Test cricket at the end of the 2009 Ashes series, and from other forms of the game in 2010.

What happened to Andrew Flintoff
Former England cricketer Andrew Flintoff has been hospitalised following a car crash while filming for BBC’s TV Show ‘Top Gear’. The 45-year-old was filming with a crew at Dunsfold Park Aerodrome in Surrey on Monday when the accident occurred.
“Freddie was injured in an accident at the Top Gear test track this morning – with crew medics attending the scene immediately,” the BBC said in a statement. “He has been taken to hospital for further treatment and we will confirm more details in due course.”
As per a report in The Sun, Flintoff’s injuries aren’t life threatening and the former all-rounder was driving on the track as normal and not driving at high speed.
“All the usual health and safety measures were in place for filming too,” a source was quoted telling The Sun. “Freddie was taken to hospital by air ambulance shortly afterwards. Filming has been postponed for now and all anyone cares about is Freddie recovering.”
This is the second time in recent times Flintoff has been involved in a mishap while filming for the show.
In 2019, he walked away safely from a 125mph crash, admitting later that he had gone a few lengths too far.
Andrew Flintoff has revealed he believes Earth is NOT round and is instead “turnip shaped” in a bizarre conspiracy theory.
The England cricket legend, 42, once revealed he was hooked on a podcast called The Flat Earthers.
In 2017, Flintoff revealed he believes the Earth is not perfectly spherical – but has now taken it a step further by calling it turnip-shaped.
When asked about his Flat Earth comments, “Freddie” – speaking to Laura Woods on talkSPORT – revealed: “It’s more like a flat turnip…
“I’m not saying it’s like a pancake, I’ve never said that.
“I’m saying it’s slightly round, but not your perfect sphere.
“People think I’m daft, but if you think about it, there’s this thing called gravity that we’re sticking to the world in…
“If you think about that in the cold light of day, it’s bonkers isn’t it? It is bonkers.
“Imagine being in Australia, you’re upside down… all the blood would rush to your head. It would be a nightmare.”
