CRICKET: Andrew Flintoff, coming of age for Engalnd
The Observer | Sport | Great bails of fire: "A month later, in the sixth and last one-day international, with India requiring 11 to win in the cauldron of Mumbai, Flintoff bowled the nerve-tingling final over. He knocked over Srinath's stumps to tie the series. In relief and jubilation, he tore his shirt off and careered around the stadium. 'It was a massive release of tension,' he says. 'But after about 10 seconds running round waving my shirt I asked myself, 'What are you doing?' I had the whitest, palest body in the world and there were about 60,000 Indians there.'"
