Fresh from England's historic Ashes win, England all-round hero Andrew Flintoff has taken time out from his busy schedule of drinking victory beer and laughing in Australia's ASHEN FACE to reveal what he thinks of EA Cricket 2005.
"The game's been in the changing room throughout the series. It's a bit weird seeing yourself and your team mates in a game actually, but I love it!" said Flintoff as EA stuffed a fistful of rubies and sapphires into his pocket.
So who's the man of the match when it comes to electronic cricket? "I'd like to say I'm the best, but as you'd expect with sportsmen we're all really competitive." And when asked who'd win out of him and Shane Warne, Flintoff replied: "Me of course, although I'm sure Warney would give me a good run for my money!" ["OOOOOOH NICE Shane!" - random Aussie fielder after EVERY SINGLE BALL]
As for The Ashes victory, Flintoff said he was too busy concentrating on his own performance to worry about putting the wind up his opponents: "The Aussies were very strong mentally, so I didn't want to spend too much energy trying to ruffle them. The best way of getting to them is beating them!" Well, that or putting laxatives in their Fosters, or installing snipers on the Oval rooftops and shooting their kneecaps, anyway.
So there you have it - Andrew Flintoff 'don't like EA Cricket, he loves it-ah, no no' and if you don't believe us, why not take a look at some lovely pictures of him playing the game and holding up the box whilst staring into the camera with eyes that seem to burn with the fire of a thousand nightmares.
