Anderson to return for Lancashire 2nd XI

by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Nottinghamshire 2nd XI can look forward to facing a bowler with 540 Test wickets as Jimmy Anderson makes his return to competitive cricket.

The 35-year-old swing king will play for Lancashire’s second string in a three-day match against at Old Trafford starting on July 15.

Anderson, who has not played since the second Test victory over Pakistan on June 3, has spent the past month rehabilitating a long-standing right shoulder injury and has returned to bowling with Lancashire and England staff in the past week.

Ahead of the first Test against India starting on August 1, he will then play in the Roses match in Division One of the County Championship, which starts on July 22 at Old Trafford.
