Freddie Flintoff has faced off against himself in a short film from Natwest, principle partner of the England and Wales Cricket Board. 

In the five-minute film, Flintoff battles against Flintoff using a specially modified bowling machine which replicates the former England great’s own deliveries during his greatest ever over in the 2005 Ashes victory at Edgbaston. 

The video shows modern-day Flintoff on the crease and tracks how he fares against himself. The film is intercut with clips of the star recalling one of his most memorable moments in the sport.

Natwest has supported the sport for 38 years. The film was created by M&C Saatchi.
