Flintoff's making a mistake!

Afp, London

England great Ian Botham said Andrew Flintoff was making a "massive mistake" in coming back to play Twenty20 county cricket after five years out of the game.
Flintoff, like Botham a pace bowling all-rounder and ex-England captain, was forced to retire through injury in 2009, his ankles and knees having repeatedly suffered from the pounding they took as he charged in.
However, Friday saw Lancashire announce the 36-year-old Flintoff was now a member of their Twenty20 squad, with 'Fred' set to make his comeback against arch-rivals Yorkshire at Old Trafford next week.
"While I wish him all the very best, I think he is making a massive mistake," Botham wrote in his column in Saturday's Daily Mirror tabloid.
