Freddie Fighting Fit, but Australia's a No Go (for Now)

After England's triumph in the World Twenty20, there is one world renown name missing from the England team. This name being Andrew Flintoff.

Freddie has been putting in some mileage in the current weeks as he fights to get himself fully fit and in order to help Lancashire try and get some silverware for the first time since 1998. 

But as his full fitness looms, speculation about Freddie's playing is mounting and according to report in the press, Australia seems key for him.

With Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria all lining up for Freddie's signature, Flintoff's key aim is to make his come back with Lancashire as soon as possible.

But his spokesman Myles Hodgson has been quick to squash any rumors of Flintoff playing abroad before he is fully ready to play, he told BBC Sport: "Nothing is on the horizon. We are not talking to anyone until he starts playing for Lancashire again."

With Flintoff recuperating in Dubai where he has set up hose with his family, the rumor mill will be strong until he is finally pulling on the whites and donning Old Trafford once again.
