Andrew Flintoff could make his long-awaited return to cricket on Friday night after being named in Lancashire's NatWest T20 Blast squad to face Warwickshire.
Almost five years after his last professional match, when he helped England seal their Ashes triumph in 2009, the 36-year-old was announced in the Red Rose's squad for the clash at Edgbaston.
The all-rounder came out of retirement in May to play a part in the Twenty20 campaign but has yet to feature for the Lightning, who lie second in the North Division.
He has made a couple of appearances for the second XI side, even playing a 50-over match against Nottinghamshire where he thumped 40 off just 23 balls to help his side to victory.
