In March 2021, it was announced that 34-year-old Australian bowler Jackson Bird would bolster the fast-bowling ranks at Emirates Old Trafford for six matches of the Club’s red-ball campaign.
Bird is set to be available from Lancashire’s third fixture of the season, as the Red Rose take on Kent in Canterbury, starting on 22 April.
He arrives at the Club with 34 Test match wickets to his name from nine caps and boasts an impressive First-Class record with 401 wickets taken at an average of just 24.
Bird currently plays Sheffield Shield cricket for Tasmania and is known for his consistent accuracy - combined with swing and seam movement - which has made him one of the most dangerous propositions to face in the Shield throughout his career.
The New South Wales-born bowler has featured in the County Championship before playing at both Hampshire and Nottinghamshire.
He last featured for Australia during the 2017/18 Ashes Boxing Day Test victory at the MCG.
