Andrew Flintoff, one the games destructive all rounders is set to play the KFC T20 Big Bash later this year.

Brisbane Heat have confirmed Andrew Flintoff will join the club for the KFC Big Bash campaign.

The former England all rounder came out of retirement to play T20 for Lancashire Lightning and was discussing with the Heat over a return for the big Australian T20 tournament.

I’m excited to be coming back to Australia and especially to Brisbane which has always been a favourite spot of mine to play,” the 36-year-old told the club’s official website. “Stuart and I have had a few conversations and I’m clear on what we’re looking to achieve in the competition”

“The Heat squad has some exciting talent and I’m looking forward to catching up with Daniel Vettori again. I’ve seen from afar how the BBL has evolved so quickly to become a world-class competition and it’s a challenge that I am certainly up for.

“I really enjoyed my T20 season with Lancs and having the opportunity to keep playing is something I am very pleased about. It’s going to be great heading out to Brisbane and getting into the swing of things for the BBL in December.”

Flintoff becomes the third international player to be signed by the heat, alongside Vettori and West Indian leg-spinner Samuel Badree.
