I was run out because Viagra tablets didn’t let me move, reveals Andrew Flintoff

New Delhi

Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has blurted out some startling details in his latest book “Second Innings”

 

The cricketer described an embarrassing instance in which he popped up three Viagra tablets an evening before he went on to bat. The after-effects of the pills made it difficult for him to move him freely on the Test ground resulting into a run-out.

 

He called it one of the “low points” in his career..

“It wasn’t very complimentary about my ‘performance’, if you get my meaning. So I decided I had to put that myth to bed even though I was in the middle of a Test match,” he recounted

 

“I took three Viagra one night and didn’t realise how long they lasted. Trying to bat the next day in that state was not easy. I was run out, simply because I couldn’t move. I could only hop. It wasn’t worth it, either. Complete waste of time.”

 

Flintoff, however, did not divulge the name of the team against whom he played.

 

The cricketer has had a roller-coaster life. He entangled himself into a number of controversies like verbal spats on field, falling prey to alcoholism and depression.

 

The 37-year-old also tried his hand at professional boxing.
