Former England captain Michael Vaughan fears Andrew Flintoff’s England career could be over.

Vaughan’s comments come after yesterday’s news that Flintoff will play no part in the rest of the 2010 cricket season as he continues his rehabilitation from a knee operation.

“I don’t see him playing for England again – they have moved on without him and are having a lot of success,” Vaughan told BBC Radio 5 Live.

But Vaughan added that he hoped this would not mark the end of the road for the 32-year-old.

“I hope it’s not the last we see of him, as I know how much hard work he’s put in over the last six months to get to this stage.

“Maybe Twenty20 cricket is his best option as he’ll only have to bowl four overs,” he added.

This latest setback casts major doubts over Flintoff’s aspirations to appear for England in the 2011 World Cup.
