Cricket: FREDDIE TO CRUMBLE; TEST MATCH SHOCKER: ENGLAND HERO FEELING THE HEAT Flintoff Hit by Burn-Out Fears
Byline: Martin ROGERS
FREDDIE Flintoff has insisted he does not fear burn-out despite being faced with a gruelling 18-month schedule.
Flintoff begins his domestic season next week and is adamant he is prepared for the action-packed programme that will leave him without any significant rest period until after the summer of 2007.
After hosting Sri Lanka and Pakistan this summer, England are due to head to Australia to defend the Ashes, to be followed by the World Cup in the Caribbean and another full home season.
But after returning from the energy-sapping tour of India just a fortnight ago, Flintoff has even found time to squeeze in filming for Ready Steady Freddie, a slot he will host on new Sky Sports programme Cricket AM.
