Andrew Flintoff considers offers from Australia's Big Bash

Flintoff said: "I’d love to play for Lancashire next year too, but every game I play is a bonus. I’m 37 in December, but I’m feeling alright."

Andrew Flintoff has hinted he could continue his cricketing comeback with a stint in Australia's Twenty20 Big Bash.

The ex-England captain, who originally retired in 2010, returned to play for Lancashire in this season's T20 Blast.

"I've had offers to play in the Big Bash but I'm going to sit down and talk with my family," said Flintoff, 36.

"If there's an opportunity there, why not? It's one of the things I've wanted to do. I was about to sign for Queensland in 2009 when I retired."

Flintoff's incredible wicket on return

Flintoff, who took 226 Test wickets for England and scored 3,845 runs, made just three appearances in the T20 Blast for Lancashire but played his part in a thrilling final which Birmingham Bears won by four runs.

The all-rounder dismissed England batsman Ian Bell with his first ball and clubbed an unbeaten 20 off eight balls as the Red Rose almost got themselves over the line.

In total, he took six wickets at an average of 13.66 in the competition, topping Lancashire's bowling averages.

"I always dreamt I'd play again but realistically didn't think it was possible," added Flintoff, speaking to BBC Radio Lancashire.

"I had the knee surgeon saying you can't run again and that was like a red rag to a bull.

"I can bowl better than this, I can get quicker. I'm getting fitter all the time - it's been a real effort on my part - and I reckon if I can have a pre-season next year, be around the team a bit more I think I can contribute and win something for Lancashire. It's a burning desire of mine."
