London, May 9 (UNI) Even as he dubbed his captaincy stint as a ''great experience'', ace all-rounder and stand-in England skipper Andrew Flintoff said he will be more than happy to return the baton to Michael Vaughan as soon as he is fit.

''If Vaughany comes back for the second Test, fantastic. I'll be more than happy to give it back to him,'' Flintoff was quoted as saying to BBC Sport.

The English sensation said his team was hoping that Vaughan could be available for the second Test against Sri Lanka, which starts at Edgbaston on May 25.

''I'm just keeping his job warm until he comes back. I had a chance to do it in the winter, which was great, and I'm doing it this week,'' said the star all-rounder.

Michael Vaughan has been out of action since December after undergoing a surgery on his knee, which broke down again in February forcing him to return home from England's tour to India.
