Flintoff withdrew from the Test series because of a hip injury
Andrew Flintoff has been passed fit to play in the third one-day international with the West Indies in Barbados.
The 31-year-old returned home after picking up a hip injury during the third Test in Antigua but rejoined the squad ahead of the one-day series.
"I've bowled as near to 100% in a net because playing in a match brings a bit more out of you," said Flintoff.
He was close to returning for Sunday's 21-run defeat in Guyana but said "we erred on the side of caution".
Flintoff added: "I've been bowling for the last week, bowled 10 overs over the previous two days and done my training and work. I was close to playing on Sunday but I'll definitely be fit for Friday."
England now face a selection headache as to who makes way for the all-rounder for the third match of the five-game series.
James Anderson and Steve Harmison both impressed in Sunday's match, while Stuart Broad excelled in Friday's opener.
Gareth Batty could be the man to make way - if England decide to operate without a spinner.
The series is currently level at 1-1 after England won the first match by one-run on the Duckworth-Lewis method in farcical circumstances.
