Lancashire trio awarded County Caps
Lancashire Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Jos Buttler, Keaton Jennings and Dane Vilas were presented with their County Caps from Chairman David Hodgkiss OBE this morning.
Jos Buttler has made a great start to 2018, averaging over 58 in all forms of cricket with one century and 13 fifties, while also regaining his spot in the England Test side to go with his regular place in the one-day side.
The 27 year-old has had a huge impact in white ball cricket, being an IPL regular and much in demand from T20 sides around the world. He has scored England's three fastest one-day hundreds and he smashed the Lancashire T20 record for the quickest half-century with a 20-ball effort against Worcestershire in 2016.
He has scored over 1,000 runs at an average of 41 for Lancashire in the shortest format of the game, helping the Lightning reach the T20 Blast final in 2014 before lifting the T20 crown twelve months later.
Keaton Jennings has enjoyed an excellent start since moving to Emirates Old Trafford this year.
He already has three first-class centuries for Lancashire in 2018 scoring 665 runs, with a best of 177 against Worcestershire while earning a call-up to the England Test team.
In white-ball games he has one century, 136 v Notts, and has scored 4 fifties, amassing a total of 514 runs at an average of 73 to date.
Dane Vilas is in his second season at Lancashire and has so far accumulated an impressive record with 2,258 runs including 5 centuries and 7 fifties for the Red Rose in all matches at an average of 37.
His highest first-class score of 244 against Hampshire last year set a new mark for a Lancashire number 6 batsman and his one-day best of 108 came against Durham at the Riverside.
The batsman/wicketkeeper has also stepped up to take over the role of captain when Liam Livingstone has been unavailable this season as well as the additional role of wicketkeeper to cover injuries to regular glove man Alex Davies.
