Default Andrew Flintoff has been sacked as England vice-captain

Andrew Flintoff has been sacked as England vice-captain and was also banned for the must-win game against Canada for breaching team discipline. He was reprimanded amid reports he fell off a pedalo and got into difficulties in the water in the early hours of Saturday, after England had lost. The were numerous reports stating he had been drinking heavily. Five players were also fined after they were seen out late following the defeat by New Zealand on Friday.
They were bowlers James Anderson, Liam Plunkett and Jon Lewis, batsman Ian Bell and wicket-keeper Paul Nixon who went to a nightclub after the game in St Lucia on Friday.

Default Flintoff penalized for being drunk and acting silly

After the NZ loss flintoff and some of his team mates kept drinking till the 4am. At one point in the dark he took a boat in the sea (while being drunk) and started shaking sideways. Finally capsized the boat. This could kill him (enough already in this WC!!) since he was drunk already and it was dark and the sea is rough at that time. The Hotel guards rescued him.

Lesson learned for all the drinkers:
Drinking is not good..

ECB stripped the VC status from Flintoff. He didn't play in the Canada game. The others disciplined were James Anderson, Ian Bell, Jon Lewis, Paul Nixon and Liam Plunkett.
