Flintoff ruled out of fourth test

England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff was today ruled out of the fourth Test against the West Indies in Barbados.

Flintoff, 31, underwent a scan on his injured right hip yesterday and the results showed a muscle strain.

He will be reassessed over the coming days in the hope that he will be fit for the final Test in Trinidad and the one-day series which follows.

The Lancashire star was clearly struggling during the third Test in Antigua, which ended in a disappointing draw for England on Thursday, but still sent down 17 overs in West Indies’ second innings as the tourists chased victory.

Seamer Amjad Khan and all-rounder Ravi Bopara have been called up to the senior squad as cover and could play in the two-day warm-up match which begins in Barbados tomorrow.

Flintoff has already been ruled out of the fourth Test which starts on Thursday, with the fifth match, scheduled to commence on March 6, his target for a return.

A one-day practice game against an WIPA President’s Select XI is next up on March 14 before a one-off Twenty20 international which precedes the 50-over series.
