    England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has been ruled out of competitive cricket for the rest of the season by his county Lancashire.

    The 32-year-old was due to make his comeback this week from a year on the sidelines after two knee operations.

    However, he was pulled out of both a limited-overs game on Monday and a three-day match, starting on Tuesday, for the second team against Yorkshire in Crosby, Liverpool.

    "Following consultation with Andrew Flintoff, Andy Williams (Flintoff's surgeon) and our own medical team, Lancashire County Cricket Club have confirmed Flintoff will not be returning to competitive cricket for the remainder of the 2010 season," said a statement by Lancashire.
