Anderson returns as Hameed helps Second XI build lead

Anderson returns as Hameed helps Second XI build lead

Hameed's 96 puts Second XI in control

Haseeb Hameed hit 96 to give Lancashire a first innings lead, as 16 wickets fell on an eventful opening day of their Second XI friendly against Nottinghamshire. 

James Anderson made his return from over a month out with a shoulder injury and took the new ball along with Tom Bailey after Lancashire were asked to bowl first at Emirates Old Trafford. 

Bailey and Anderson were immediately amongst the wickets, reducing the visitors for 27/3 and the wickets continued to fall regularly. 

By the time that Notts were bowled out just after lunch for 126, Bailey (3/26), Anderson (2/32), Liam Hurt (2/32), Danny Lamb (2/8) and Matthew Parkinson (1/26) all had a share of the wickets. 

Lancashire too lost early wickets, as they stumbled to 63/4, however opener Hameed was still unbeaten at the crease.

The 21-year-old guided his side beyond Notts' first innings total and was only dismissed in the final over of the day, for 96 from 159 balls. 

The Red Rose closed on 163/6 - with a lead of 37 and Lamb unbeaten on 21.
