London:Andrew Flintoff is expected to be fit for England's One-day International campaign despite suffering an ankle problem during the Third Test against New Zealand at Trent Bridge.

Lancashire announced that he is being rested from the County's Cheltenham Gloucester Trophy quarterfinal against Yorkshire at Old Trafford on Wednesday as a precautionary measure.

County officials said: "Flintoff experienced pain in the posterior of his left ankle during the third Test match and underwent an X-Ray on Monday which was clear."

The all-rounder is a crucial component of the England Limited Overs side with his explosive batting and miserly pace bowling.

In his 71 One-day Internationals he has scored 1,599 runs at an average of 30.16 with a highest score of 84 and has taken 71 wickets at 25.08 with a career best of four for 14.

England open their One-day triangular NatWest Series campaign with a day-night match against New Zealand at Old Trafford on June 24.

The tournament also involves West Indies, with the final to be held at Lord's on July 10.
