Blatherwick, Wells included for Kent while Anderson misses out with tight calf
Head Coach Glen Chapple has named a 13-man squad for Lancashire's trip to Kent
James Anderson will miss Lancashire’s LV= Insurance County Championship fixture starting on Thursday against Kent at Canterbury. He has a tight calf. Anderson will continue to be assessed by the ECB and Lancashire medical teams.
Luke Wells has been added to the 13-man First Team squad for the first time after stepping up his recovery from a hamstring injury. Wells played in the first two days of Lancashire's Second XI Championship fixture against Glamorgan this week.
Pace bowler Jack Blatherwick also makes the trip following an impressive start to life at Emirates Old Trafford in pre-season and with the Second XI. He replaces spinner Tom Hartley in the squad.
Liam Livingstone arrived back in the UK yesterday after ending his Indian Premier League spell with Rajasthan Royals early, due to bubble fatigue. He is currently undergoing a mandatory period of quarantine at home.
The action gets underway at 11am tomorrow (22 April) and supporters will be able to watch all of the action from Canterbury, via a live stream which will be shared on the Lancashire Cricket website.
