Lancashire squad named for Loughborough friendly
Squad News: Loughborough MCCU vs Lancashire
Head Coach Glen Chapple has named a 13 man squad for Lancashire’s season opener against Loughborough MCCU, in a three-day friendly starting tomorrow at the Haselgrave Ground.
Dane Vilas will Captain the side for the first time since he was appointed permanently into the role last year, whilst Test cricket’s most successful pace bowler James Anderson is likely to feature.
Australian overseas signing Glenn Maxwell has travelled to Loughborough with his new teammates after arriving in the UK earlier this week.
Mark Footitt has also been included in the squad, after it was announced that he has joined the Red Rose on an initial 28-day loan from Nottinghamshire. Lancashire's Tom Bailey, Richard Gleeson, Liam Hurt, Toby Lester and Danny Lamb have all been ruled out through injury.
Matthew Parkinson has also been ruled out after suffering a nasty jaw injury, which required plastic surgery, on Lancashire's pre-season tour of Dubai late last month. The 22 year-old has been bowling pain free this week at Emirates Old Trafford.
