Andrew Flintoff, former England cricketer, was one all-rounder who many thought would fill in the shoes of Ian Botham. He was a brilliant all-rounder. But for various reasons, incl injuries, he did not reach the cricketing heights of Ian Botham.
Now he is in news for a different reason all together. The way people manage their '2nd innings,' just hit a new high !! He is taking up boxing!! WOW ! That is what I call true '3rd Innings'! Go beyond all logic, follow your heart... pursue your madness...Such a fighter he is, on cricket field or elsewhere, boxing world watch-out....
