LOndon:

Allrounder Andrew Flintoff is in doubt for England's third one-day match against India on Monday with a knee injury.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement on Saturday that Flintoff had a scan which showed mild inflammation and was treated with a cortisone injection.

"He will continue to be assessed by the England medical team on Sunday," the ECB said.

Flintoff complained of stiffness in his knee during Friday's one-day international against India at Bristol where he finished with bowling figures of 5-56. India won to level the seven-match series 1-1.

Flintoff had only returned to England for the first match at Southampton on Tuesday after spending four months sidelined with an ankle injury.

The ECB called up bowler Jon Lewis as cover for Monday's game at Birmingham and Thursday's match at Manchester.
