2005 Ashes star to feature in NatWest T20 Blast for Lancashire Lightening.
Former England captain Andrew Flintoff has confirmed that he will play T20 cricket for Lancashire this season.
The 35-year-old retired from all forms of the game five years ago and has since occupied his time as a media personality and, briefly, as a professional boxer.
Flintoff, who called time on his career due to recurring knee problems, played 79 Tests, 141 one-day internationals and seven Twenty20 matches for England.
He has played 16 T20s for Lancashire, averaging 29.64 with the bat, with his best knock of 93 coming against Derbyshire in 2009.
Flintoff is expected to play for St Annes in the Northern League this weekend, before featuring in second team game for Lancashire next week.
The next step after those two outings will be making his bow in the Natwest T20 Blast.
