Posted By: Staff

London, July 5 (ANI): England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has found one place where he can still sneak a pint ahead of the Ashes series.

The new found place is Australian dressing room, where he is welcomed by Australian vice-captain Michael Clarke, among several others.

"In Australia I spent a bit of time in the changing-room with him. There are going to be some tough times on the pitch and I think it would be silly for us not to catch up and congratulate each other and grab a beer or whatever," the News of the World quoted, Clarke, as saying.

According to reports, Freddie is close to several of the baggy green players and when England were thrashed 5-0 Down Under in 2007, former coach Duncan Fletcher claimed the all-rounder was in the Australia dressing-room and drank until midnight after the Second Test in Adelaide.
