England allrounder Andrew Flintoff is still feeling pain in his left ankle and will see a specialist on Sunday, four days before the second Test against Pakistan starts in Manchester.
The acting England captain could bowl only two overs for Lancashire in a county match against Kent on Saturday. He complained of discomfit in an ankle that had bone fragments floating in it. Flintoff missed last week's first Test against Pakistan -- in which opener Andrew Strauss was captain -- and England's 5-0 one-day defeat to Sri Lanka.
Regular captain Michael Vaughan has a long-term knee injury. The second Test is at Old Trafford starting Thursday with the four-Test series 0-0.
