Mahmood returns to 14-man Blast squad
Head Coach Glen Chapple has made two changes to the 14-man squad for Lancashire Lightning's away fixtures against Northants Steelbacks and Notts Outlaws
Saqib Mahmood has recovered from an abdominal strain to be included in Lancashire Lightning's Vitality Blast squad for the first time this summer.
In the second of two changes for this weekend's fixtures at Wantage Road and Trent Bridge, young all-rounder George Balderson has also been called into the squad.
Lancashire Lightning head into the matches on Friday (6.30pm) and Saturday (2.30pm) in fifth place in the North Group, following last Sunday's tie in the reverse fixture against the Outlaws at Emirates Old Trafford.
