Leeds:

England could again be without allrounder Andrew Flintoff for Sunday's fifth one-day international against India.

Flintoff sat out of training on Saturday because of discomfort in his left ankle that developed after Thursday's three-wicket win that put England ahead 3-1 with three games to play.

The problem is unrelated to the knee injury that kept Flintoff out of the third match, which England won by 42 runs.

The 29-year-old Flintoff had just returned to the England team for the first time since the World Cup that finished in April.

He has missed all of England's Tests since then and a one-day series against West Indies with a recurrence of left ankle problems and had another operation on June 1.

Flintoff had surgery on the same ankle in July 2006 and it still troubled him when he led England in its 5-0 Ashes series loss in Australia.
