Southampton (UK), Sep.9 (ANI): Australian speedster Brett Lee has claimed that England have lost their X-factor without all-rounder Andrew Flintoff.
Flintoff is going through his own period of rehabilitation following knee surgery and is presently recuperating in his home in Dubai.
"England have some other great bowlers but what Andrew brings to the game is that X-factor," The Telegraph quoted Lee, as saying.
"You look at the great players around the world, not only in cricket, but at Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and David Beckham, they have all got that aura. I know we have heard a lot about aura recently but Andrew Flintoff has definitely got that. He brings that to the game and quite possibly when he is not around that aura that he would bring to the team is not there," Lee added. (ANI)
