Being Freddie

Andrew Flintoff's new book is yet to hit the stands, but it can be pre-ordered on Amazon. Times Online has an excerpt from his book.

"I AM two people. There is Andrew who goes home and is a father and a husband, and on the cricket pitch there is Fred, who just goes out there and has a crack. After losing the first Ashes Test at Lord’s, I went to see a “mental coach”, who reminded me of that. I took it on board and for the rest of the series I tried just to go out there and enjoy my cricket. I wasn’t going to get bowled pushing forward or nicking a soft one to the keeper. I was going to get caught out on the boundary if I was going to get out — I was going to get out on my terms."

Only a mental coach can tell you to go have crack :). This book definitely goes into my wish-list.

Other books (Ashes Related) to look forward to..
