Flintoff is back for England

Andrew Flintoff

There's good news for England's one-day cricket team- Andrew Flintoff is fit to play their third international with the West Indies on Friday.

The 31-year-old had returned home after picking up a hip injury, but rejoined the squad before the one-day series.

The two teams are currently level at one-all.

England now have the tricky task of deciding who's going to have to drop out of the squad to make way for the all-rounder.

He was close to making a return for their match on Sunday, but it was decided he should sit that one out just in case.

Flintoff says "I've been bowling for the last week, bowled 10 overs over the previous two days and done my training and work.... I'll definitely be fit for Friday."
