Andrew Flintoff: Autobiography will offer insight

30th September 2009

Cricketer Andrew Flintoff has embarked on a promotional tour for his new autobiography after being kept off the cricket pitch following a knee operation.

The popular all-rounder, who helped England to their Ashes victory this summer, has promised to offer genuine insight with the new book - but also pledged not to let his cricket career suffer.

Commenting on the new autobiography, Ashes to Ashes, Flintoff told The Times: 'The book is a bit more of an insight to me.'

And according to the cricketer's ghost writer, the book tackles 'certain lifestyle issues', exemplified by his drunken Downing Street appearance after winning the Ashes in 2005.

The star is hoping to be back in the running for England selection as early as next March – despite going under the knife for the eighth time in his career - but in the meantime he will be promoting the upcoming release.

He thinks the book, which goes on sale tomorrow (October 1st), will show fans that there is more to him than his extrovert, cricket-obsessed persona often touted by the tabloids.
