On Flintoff watch at Arundel

Lancashire getting tonked here in Arundel by Leicestershire - Second XI Twenty20 finals day with 'the big man' Andrew Flintoff in action. Jordan Clarke has just been hit for six but Flintoff is bowling well - just bowled Michael Thornely.

He isn't being overly active in the field but he's keeping up with the kids. It was funny hearing the crowd clap sedately when it was announced he was coming onto bowl. Suspect it might be a bit different tomorrow night if he plays at Old Trafford.

Mark Chilton, Second XI coach was very emphatic about the 'if' when I spoke to him. We will have to see how he comes through today he said when I asked. But if Lancs beat Leics in this first semi final, will they risk playing him in the final?

Forty overs might be overegging the pudding. He needs to play cricket, Chilton said.We'll see how he goes.

His team arrived at Arundel in a coach, apart from Fred who drove in in his BMW and was asked at the gate if he was member or player. That reflects the charm of this place.

Oh my god
. Fielding at mid on, he has just let one go through. Very apologetic to bowler but that was a bad fumble.
