London - England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff believes he is still on course to return to action for Lancashire in two months.

Flintoff has had two knee operations since helping England to victory in the final Test of last year's Ashes series and has yet to make it back onto the field.

The 32-year-old has now retired from Test cricket but intends to return and fight for his England place in the limited-overs formats.

Flintoff, who has been training for up to six hours a day at his new base in Dubai, told Sky Sports: "I feel I have turned the corner and I am feeling all right.

"There is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel but it is a long time since I last played cricket.

"I am not going to say I will be back on this day - I think it would be unwise to do that - but I am looking at the end of July, early August."
