14-man Lancashire Lightning squad named for Roses T20 opener
Tim David and Liam Livingstone have both been named in Lancashire Lightning's squad to face Yorkshire Vikings in the Club's Vitality Blast opener at Emirates Old Trafford.
Both David and Livingstone returned from the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this week and go straight into the 14-man squad which has been named for the Roses T20 on Friday evening.
Powerful batting all-rounder, David, joins Lancashire Lightning following explosive spells at the Pakistan Super League and IPL already this year, with Multan Sultans and Mumbai Indians.
Livingstone, meanwhile, enjoyed a fine debut season with his new franchise Punjab Kings, the all-rounder scoring 437 runs at a blistering strike rate of 182.
Seamer Richard Gleeson is in contention for a first First Team appearance since last August following injury whilst Liam Hurt is included in the squad after his short-term loan at Derbyshire ended.
Phil Salt is also set to make his home Vitality Blast debut for the Club.
Lancashire Lightning squad to face Yorkshire Vikings:
Dane Vilas (C), Josh Bohannon, Steven Croft, Tim David, Richard Gleeson, Tom Hartley, Liam Hurt, Keaton Jennings, Danny Lamb, Liam Livingstone, Matt Parkinson, Phil Salt, Luke Wells, Luke Wood
