London:

Star all-rounder Andrew Flintoff says he will not reconsider his retirement decision despite Australia putting England on the backfoot on day-one of the deciding Ashes Test at the Oval here.

Flintoff, who will retire from Tests after the Ashes owing to recurring injuries, may not get the chance to bid adieu to the longer version of the game on a high with a win as England were reduced to 307 for 8 on the first day of the fifth and final match on Thursday.

"That's what you do when you retire you say I am not playing again," Flintoff said adding that "I cannot see myself giving up Test cricket and then going into four-day cricket," he said about his role for Lancashire.

"If I felt I needed a game before a one-day series or if Lancashire were struggling with injuries, I would play here and there," he was quoted as saying by 'The Times'.

Flintoff, who plays for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League, will be concentrating on the one-dayers and Twenty20.
