Freddie to retire

Freddie Flintoff has announced his retirement from Test cricket, with this Ashes series to be his swan song.

He will, of course, continue with the more forgiving and better paying shorter forms of the game. I wonder if this is something we might start to see more and more. Players reckoning Test cricket is too much effort and instead focusing on the short stuff. It seems like just yesterday when players were doing the exact opposite.

Like Vaughan, I think Fred was a good cricketer but bar a few short periods of his career, never reached greatness. Its a shame because he certainly had the ability to be the best all rounder in the world.
