FREDDIE WANTS COLLY BACK HOME

Former England captain Andrew Flintoff believes Paul Collingwood should return home early after his poor tour of Australia to focus on the World Cup.

Collingwood managed just 83 runs during a Test series England's batsman otherwise dominated, before scores of 16, six and one in the limited overs series so far.

Flintoff believes the all-rounder would be better served by getting away from cricket and return to his family, with his wife expecting a child next month.

"I'd be tempted for him to come home, because in the World Cup we're going to be need him playing well," Flintoff said.
