The life story of one of the best and most entertaining cricketers England has ever produced.
Very few players in the world have the
ability to empty bars as quickly as Freddie Flintoff.
When Freddie is at the crease, the viewing
is compelling. 2003 saw Freddie's stock rise throughout the year. Returning to
the World Cup in March fitter and stronger than ever, he was the tournament's
most economical bowler and England's
highest run scorer. This form continued into the summer where he landed the Man
of the Natwest Series and the Npower Man of the Series awards.
His spectacular 142 at Lord's and
swashbuckling 95 at The Oval endeared him even more into the hearts of the English
cricketing public, where Freddie assumed the mantle of fans' favourite.
In a fast and furious look back at an incredible
year for him, Freddie introduces every match in his own words. A year which saw
him honoured by being named as one of the five cricketers of the year in the
new Wisden Almanack.
