Freddie Flintoff ‘Cocks a Snook at the IPL’
What he said:
“Just been confirmed India don’t want to be here! I reckon they’d play in drizzle in the IPL for millions not at Lords though.”
Andrew Flintoff joins the legion of English cricketers who believe that the Indian cricket team surrendered their No.1 status on the altar of Mammon.
What he really meant:
“I’m not too keen on our chaps not willing to return to the field when D/L loaded the game our way. But you don’t want to me to tweet that, do you?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I wonder if I could get one of the IPL franchises to vend Freddie Flintoff branded paraphernalia?”
