Pain-killing injection for ace Flintoff.

Andrew flintoff has had a steroid injection as England bid to field their best side for the NatWest Series decider against India at Lord's today.

While the debate has raged in football circles about whether England midfielder Steven Gerrard should have a pain-killing jab in his broken toe ahead of their Euro 2008 qualifier against Israel tomorrow, Flintoff was prepared to go down that route despite voicing his dislike for that option in the past.

Flintoff, 29, sent down 15 deliveries on the main square at Lord's yesterday afternoon and has been pencilled in to play only his fourth match in a series which is poised at 3-3.

Since returning from a third operation on his left ankle last month he has been troubled by pain in the joint and also missed a match due to a niggle in his right knee.
