12.45pm - What a victory for England, who have gone 1-0 up and are now in a wonderful position in the series. Flintoff grabs one of the stumps and acknowledges the crowd, gets hugs from all his team-mates after what can only be described as a match winning spell this morning, in his last Lord's Test. Fittingly, it's Flintoff who leads England off the field, clapping a stump and the ball together and he gets a standing ovation.
That is the online commentary found in Cricinfo.
Yes, England are one up in the Ashes.....Is this the beginning of an new era? Go Flinty......Go England.......Finally after 75 years a win in Lord's.
In his last Test at the home of cricket, Andrew Flintoff broke England's 75-year Lord's Drought with his first five-wicket haul since the Ashes-clinching Oval Test of 2005. It was, unquestionably, a performance that will enhance his already mythical and legendary status within English cricket and world cricket. What a farewell ending on a high.
Punter, "is this 2005 all over again?"
