Freddie Flintoff still feeling gloomy about Kanpur ODI loss

Bangalore, Nov.22 : England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff was still angry last night at the injustice of England's defeat.

All-rounder Freddie said the farcical conclusion of the third one-day international "left a bad taste in the mouth."

Former players who insisted the regulations must be changed to allow a proper game of cricket supported him, reports The Sun.

Flintoff took three wickets to drag England back into the match in Kanpur on Thursday - including having run-machine Yuvraj caught on the boundary.

But it came to nothing because bad light curtailed the match and left India as winners by 16 runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method.

Flintoff said: "We gave it our all - so to finish it like that left a bitter taste in our mouths. The lads were very down in the dressing room."

Former England coach David Lloyd, now a TV commentator, said the match should have started sooner.
