All about the knock: It was a great knock by Flintoff that was overshadowed within an hour or so by a greater effort from Chris Gayle. It's not very often you see an English batsman slamming six after six in an ODI match. When Andrew Flintoff slammed 7 sixes, it left Lord's certainly spellbound and asking for more. Great effort but unfortunately on the losing side thanks to 132 by Gayle later in the day, which was a match-winning one.
