In 2005 summer, Andrew Flintoff established himself as England's greatest all-round cricketer, producing a succession of wholehearted and inspirational performances to reap 402 runs and 24 wickets in five Tests, and carry his team to glory in arguably the greatest Ashes series of all time. It was a performance that resounded around the globe, and drove Flintoff to the sort of superstar status that his many admirers had always believed was within his grasp. Big, northern and mightily proud of it, he hits the ball harder than any English cricketer. Despite being found out by India's spinners, he picked up a maiden Test century against New Zealand and was an integral factor in a successful home summer in 2002. He returned for the World Cup, where he was the most economical bowler in the tournament. He single-handedly inspired England to a two-run victory over Australia at Edgbaston, in one of the greatest Tests of all time, followed up with a maiden Ashes hundred at Trent Bridge, sealed the series with a marathon five-wicket haul at The Oval, and embarked on a 17-hour bender culminating in an open-top bus parade through the streets of London.
