Bohannon smashes ton on virtual opening day

Bohannon smashes ton on virtual opening day

Lancashire finish on 262/4 on Day One of the virtual Specsavers County Championship fixture against Kent

Josh Bohannon completed a fine century on Day One of the virtual Specsavers County Championship match against Kent at Emirates Old Trafford.

The match marks what should have been the opening day of the county season, which has been postponed until at least the end of May due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In the absence of live cricket, the Club are bringing cricket to our social media channels via the Cricket Captain 2019 game and asking supporters to make key decisions throughout.

Bohannon was the star of the show on Day One, reaching three figures just before the close of play on what was a tricky surface with cloudy overhead conditions.

Afforded the opportunity of choosing what to do after Kent lost the toss, Lancashire's supporters elected to bat first at Emirates Old Trafford - albeit by a narrow margin.

Despite losing Alex Davies early, Keaton Jennings and Bohannon marched on to lunch and the former completed a half-century just after the break before he departed, caught behind for 55.

Jones made 16 before being clean bowled but his departure brought Bohannon and Steven Croft together, the pair putting on a sizeable fourth wicket stand.

Boltonian Bohannon then brought up his century just before the close of play following the loss of Croft, while captain Dane Vilas survived a close LBW call in the final over.

Join Lancashire Members and supporters throughout the next three days to discuss and action key decision throughout the fixture, bringing the Red Rose family together at the start of the season.
