    Johnson V Flintoff

    In response to the Johnson V Broad batting thread, I though perhaps a more realistic comparrison.

    So the Question is:

    Which of these two players will have the biggest influence on International Cricket in the next 3 years?

    Mitch.

    I'll be amazed if Flintoff is still playing in all formats in a year.

    Johnson by a long shot currently. However, if Flintoff becomes fully fit again and starts playing his cricket from 2005ish, he could trump Johnson, but both are generally injury prone, so who knows?

    I'd go Flintoff if there was a guarantee he'd be fit and in form for the next 3 years...so I picked Johnson. I think Johnson's bowling will get better and he can already hold a bat pretty well.

    I think Flintoff beats Johnson in all departments on paper, whether that will translate to dominance or even consistency on the park, we have no idea.

    I actually like Johnson's batting style moreso than Flintoff's, he plays some shots that look great. Whereas from what I've seen of Flintoff he favours the flat-footed heave a little more. Mind you, it's been a while since I've seen him bat. Both can hit a ball. Flintoff's backswing sometimes looked to me like he had a small terrier in his arms and he was trying to shield it from a Rottweiler. Effective though I enjoyed watching him bat when he was going well.

    If Flintoff's fit then imo it's him easily, as he's England's main man.

    If he plays as sporadically as he has in recent times, it will likely be Johnson.

    Of course the third option is tha tJohnson's workload turns him into Flintoff in terms of injuries. They said on TV t'other day he's bowled on average > 50 overs per test for the past 9 he's played. That's heaps.

    Johnson, Freddie is a bit over the hill I think. Although, that said, injury is always looming for Johnson, imo, considering his workload.

    Considering the injury history of Johnson it is amazing that he has been able to maintain such a bowling workload over the past year. Must be at his physical best right now, terrific for a young man to get his body into such shape after so many early problems.

    As for the question, well Johnson on current form. Three years is a long time, many factors may change. Think back three years ago and Flintoff was at the time regarded as one of the great all-rounders of the modern game. Now he is being compared to an emerging fast bowler who has made some half centuries.

    That's the thing.

    I can well see Flintoff not playing a particularly massive amount of cricket over the next 3 years TBH. Hope otherwise, obviously, but I think you'd be asking a lot for him to play enough to better what Johnson appears likely to manage to do.
