England faces a test of character: Andrew Flintoff

England faces a test of character: Andrew Flintoff

England, stunned by their humiliating opening loss to West Indies, face a test of character when the series resumes tomorrow, all-rounder Andrew Flintoff said.
"It's a big test of everyone isn't it?," Flintoff said on Tuesday. "After the game we were flat and probably still are a little bit now, but as bad as it was it's the first of four."
The second match of the four-test series starts at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua tomorrow with England reeling after being bowled out for 51 on the last day in Jamaica.
"We've got to start performing on the field, taking our wickets and scoring our runs," Flintoff said. "I'm confident we can do that.
"That's going to be the test. When you go through something like that, you have still go to back your game. It's a test of character, it's about how people respond."
Flintoff was the only England batsman to reach double figures in the second innings as Jerome Taylor and Sulieman Benn rolled through order at will.
"We are good players and to get bowled out that quickly there was a lot of shock," he said. "I don't think I've been involved in an innings like that where you can't do anything."
