England seamer Jimmy Anderson will make his return to competitive cricket for Lancashire second XI in a three-day match against Nottinghamshire at Emirates 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 returned to bowling working with Lancashire and England staff in the past seven days.

As part of his plan, ahead of the first Specsavers Test against India starting on August 1, he will play for Lancashire seconds against Nottinghamshire and the Roses match in the Specsavers County Championship Division One match against Yorkshire at Emirates Old Trafford starting on July 22.
