Lancashire's new overseas signing Farveez Maharoof has been included in Lancashire's 13-man squad for the LV= County Championship match with Somerset at Liverpool.

Lancashire will be aiming to build on a strong start to the season which saw them comfortably beat head coach Peter Moores' old side Sussex before they were not in competitive action last week.

Following Somerset crashing to heavy defeat at the hands of Warwickshire in their last outing, bookmakers make Lancashire the Evens favourite to win this clash with Somerset available at 4/5.

Maharoof follows in the footsteps of compatriots Muttiah Muralitharan and Sanath Jayasuriya in signing for the Red Rose and is ready to make his debut.

Lancashire (from): Glen Chapple (captain), Karl Brown, Mark Chilton, Steven Croft, Gareth Cross, Paul Horton, Gary Keedy, Simon Kerrigan, Farveez Maharoof, Sajid Mahmood, Stephen Moore, Oliver Newby, Tom Smith
