England all rounder Andrew Flintoff has declared himself fit to play for the World XI in their Test match against Australia starting on Friday.

Flintoff injured his wrist after dropping a return catch from Australia captain Ricky Ponting in Sunday's third one-day international in Melbourne.

He was taken to hospital but X-rays cleared him of any fractures and he told a news conference in Sydney on Monday he was ready to play again.

"I'm going to go for some treatment but, like I said, there's nothing broken," he said.

"I had an X-ray yesterday, there's just bruising, so I'm not expecting any problems with it or to be unfit for the Test match. I'll be fine," he said.
