Anderson named in Lancashire squad for Durham clash
Ashley Giles has named a fourteen man squad for Lancashire's Specsavers County Championship clash against Durham at Southport and Birkdale CC today.
Play will start at midday today due to the late finish for the squad last night in the NatWest T20 Blast.
James Anderson (only available for the first two days)
Lancashire v Durham
- Durham have only lost once in their last five matches on the road to Lancashire; that one defeat did come in the most recent meeting however (W2 D2).
- Lancashire have won their last two matches played in Southport; this will be Durham’s first visit to the venue in the County Championship.
- Durham have gone nine games unbeaten heading into this encounter (W3 D6).
- Durham’s Scott Borthwick hit centuries in both innings when these sides last met (May 2016); the only time he’s managed to post two separate hundreds in a first-class match.
- Keaton Jennings has recorded five centuries in the County Championship this summer; more than any other batsman.
