Lancashire announced the overseas signing of Finn Allen in March 2021 for the Club's Vitality Blast campaign that summer.
The 21-year-old made headlines during his breakthrough season when he powered Wellington Firebirds to the 2020/21 Super Smash title, scoring a chart-topping 512 runs at a strike rate of almost 194.
Throughout the Super Smash, Allen became notorious for his wide range of stroke play - including an inventive switch-hit - while he also struck a tournament-best 25 sixes.
Since agreeing to join Lancashire, Allen has made his T20I debut for New Zealand smashing 71 from just 29 balls during his third appearance against Bangladesh.
His run scoring has also attracted Indian Premier League (IPL) attention – Allen has been snapped up by Royal Challengers Bangalore where he will play in his first IPL campaign ahead of arriving at Emirates Old Trafford in June.
