Freddie Flintoff's Field Of Dreams | Preview (BBC One)

Freddie Flintoff attempts to create a brand new cricket team from an unlikely group of teens. He is determined to prove that anyone can play competitive cricket, whatever their background.

Undeterred by the somewhat negative reception to his idea, he holds try-outs in his hometown of Preston and starts a training regime with a group of lively teenagers.

He meets 15-year-old Sean, who has attended several different schools, and 17-year-old Ammar, who moved to the UK six years ago and had never even heard of Freddie.

The boys have a lot to learn in a very short space of time, as they will ultimately be competing against teams that have been playing together for years, whereas most of these boys have never even picked up a cricket bat before.

Although they have just a few weeks of chaotic training and only a vague notion of the rules, Freddie is keen to test the boys' progress and get them to play their first ever cricket match.

However, not everyone in his urban posse is impressed with the rural setting or the traditions of cricket that Freddie is trying to draw them to.

Begins Tuesday 5th July at 8pm on BBC One.
