Here, let me break it for you

And the prize for the Most Catastrophically Stupid Management of a Player Injury goes to : England and Freddie Flintoff. Flintoff has returned home, missing the one-dayers in Sri Lanka and who knows what else. The idiocy of playing Flintoff in the seventh one-day against India was apparent; but this lunacy was taken to new heights by the decision to play him in the Twenty20 World Cup. Does Freddie not want to play in Sri Lanka - is it too hot for him? Have the Tigers spooked him? Is Flintoff in severe financial trouble? Does he face foreclosure on his little cottage in Lancashire? Does he have three kids going to medical school? What is the story? Why does he have to play?

If he goes to Sri Lanka, he'll miss the footie season, won't he? Come on Preston United!

Well done on fluking your way into the semis, by the way.

Freddie is moving with all the freedom of movement that Stepehen Hawking has.

Is it courage or stupidity to continue to play when your obviously not right and are getting worse?

Slightly off-topic, but I think Freddie has ruined Broad's career. Now don't ask me why!

Atheist, that must be it. Freddie'd rather be back on a couch, guzzling stubbies, watching Preston on the telly (perhaps even making a trip to the stadium once in a while). Vaughan would have made him bowl 30 overs a day in Sri Lanka. Freddie would have lost too much weight.

JRod: Does Freddie sound as wierd as Dr. Hawking? In any case I'll buy "A Brief History of My Ankle" when he writes it. I'm very curious.

Dinnie: Freddie has certainly ensured that millions and millions and millions of Indian kids will come to know Stuart's name (and his pained expression after the fourth delivery).

To me Freddie makes as much sense as Hawking. But his off cutter is much better.
