Ex-England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff joined up with his former side during a training session in Australia.

The 37-year-old quit cricket in 2010 but came out of retirement in 2014 to play for Lancashire in the T20 Blast.

He is in Australia having played for Brisbane Heat in the Twenty20 Big Bash.

Flintoff joined England as they prepared for a 50-over match against India on Tuesday in a tri-series also involving Australia, who beat England in the opening game.

The move to get Flintoff involved is believed to have been instigated by England coach Peter Moores.
