London:Burly England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff received further recognition for his fine performance this summer when he was named the Professional Cricketers' Association's player of the year. The England star was handed the award at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday.

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.
