Andrew Flintoff often took the centerstage for England and he certainly was in the thick of the action when he ran out Ricky Ponting in the fifth Test of the 2009 series at The Oval. The all-rounder removed Australia captain Ponting with a bullet throw from mid-off, a dismissal the visitors never really recovered from as they slipped to 348 all out to lose the game by 197 runs and the series 2-1. Ponting had put on 127 with Mike Hussey for the third wicket in Australia’s second innings but Flintoff’s electric fielding cut the partnership short. Relive the iconic moment!
