Star England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff is assured of England win in the upcoming Ashes series against Austrailia. Flintoff also declared the current England test side the best ever in England cricketing history.
Talking to BBC, Flintoff said, “It’s probably the best England team we’ve ever had. We’ve got Jimmy Anderson, who is England’s best-ever bowler; Alastair Cook, England’s best-ever batter.
“And you throw in the likes of Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow, who (are) fantastic – it’s exciting times.
“It’s not a case of England winning, it’s by how many. I believe in that side.
“It’s the type of side you’d want to be involved in, from the coach and the captain down. I think England will have a good winter.”
But former England batsman Kevin Pietersen is not happy with current England’s Ashes squad and labelled it as “horrendous.” Also the inclusion of Gary Balance and James Vince widely criticised in the UK press.
Flintoff also speaks on Ben Stokes controversy, “Obviously there’s a few things going on at the minute,” Flintoff said. “I’ve only seen what everybody else has seen and it’s something that’s being investigated so I’m not commenting on that. He’s a fantastic cricketer and it’s flattering when he’s compared to you. He’s such an exciting talent but so too are many of the England side,” he said further.
