Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff MBE is a former England Cricketer, regularly considered as one of the best in the world. Representing Lancashire and Chennai Super Kings on the domestic scene, before retirement from Cricket in 2010, he had achieved 138 ODI caps for England.
Although often plagued within injuries, Flintoff was part of the famous 2005 Ashes’ winning team who beat Australia on home soil, later receiving the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the ICC Player of the Year award, the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award and an MBE for his exploits. Now retired from the game, Flintoff is a regular with media commitments and also has turned his talent towards after dinner speaking, specialising as a cricket speaker.
A prolific career as a youngster, Flintoff broke into the full senior side in 2002, and has received a hoard of accolades across his time as an International cricketer, including Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World in 2005, ICC Player of the Year in 2005 and leading the England team as temporary captain due to the absence of Michael Vaughan and Marcus Trescothick between 2006 – 2009.
Representing England at 3 world cups and the 2007 ICC World Twenty20, Flintoff joined two elite lists; ODI players who have scored over 3000 runs and taken 150 wickets, and Test cricketers who have scored over 2000 runs and taken 200 wickets. Only one of seven players to make both batting and bowling honours boards at Lord’s, he is the only Englishman to appear on both lists, reinforcing his superiority within the world of cricket.
Twice the PCA Player of the year (2004 and 2005) Flintoff has now turned his attentions to media commitments, fronting adverts for Men’s clothing company Jacamo and supermarket Morrisons; he is also a team captain on the Sky 1 show A League Of Their Own, a sporting based celebrity panel show which has received many plaudits, and gained Flintoff a larger fan base.
A Lancashire boy who has often faced criticism for his laddish behaviour, Flintoff’s career was occasionally marred by reports of over the top and drunken antics. A real character with a true cricketing talent, Flintoff is arguably one of the most instantly recognisable cricketing icons of the last decade. A relatable cricket speaker with an ability to portray both the fun and serious sides of his career within Cricket, Andrew Flintoff is the ideal addition to any event as a keynote or after dinner speaker.
A gentleman, kind hearted and friendly giant, Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff is a popular after dinner and cricket speaker, and will add a new edge and depth to any event.
