England recall Flintoff for second South Africa Test

England recalled Andrew Flintoff to a 12-man squad for the second Test against South Africa starting at Headingley on Friday after drawing the first of a four-match campaign at Lord's here Monday.

The fast-bowling all-rounder, who hasn't played Test cricket since captaining England to defeat against Australia at Sydney in January 2007, as they lost the Ashes 5-0, because of ankle and side injuries, was added to the team that played at Lord's.

Reserve fast bowler Chris Tremlett was dropped from the squad.

England 2nd Test squad:
Andrew Strauss, Alastair Cook, Michael Vaughan (captain), Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Paul Collingwood, Tim Ambrose (wk), Stuart Broad, Ryan Sidebottom, James Anderson, Monty Panesar, Andrew Flintoff.
