Mahmood And Cross In Lancashire Side For Pro40 Clash

Sajid Mahmood has been included in the Lancashire squad to take on Northamptonshire in the Pro40 clash on Wednesday, along with Gareth Cross as Mark Chilton misses out.

Captain Chilton has bronchitis, so will be out for five days. Cross will play as a batsman while Stuart Law takes over the reins of the side.

Mahmood returns after hernia surgery. He played in a second eleven game last week, taking three wickets for 16 runs.
