Flintoff has scored at least 50 in his last eight Tests - plus two 100s - and hit three tons and a 99 in his last seven one-day internationals. Earlier this month he was named the International Cricket Council's one-day player of the year.
It's worth mentioning that he was earlier named man of the series after the recent 4-0 Test decimation of West Indies. Earlier on Tuesday he helped England claim a place in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy as they beat Australia by six wickets at Edgbaston.
Flintoff, who also became a father earlier this month, beat off competition from Steve Harmison, Robert Key and Andrew Strauss to claim the award, which is voted for by the players themselves.
