Exactly. And Lanashire should wait another year or so, until he retires. "Anderson bowling from the Anderson end" just lacks all modesty, decorum and dignity.

And there is no comparison with Statham, who took more than 1800 wkts for Lancs. How many wkts has Anderson taken for the county he hardly ever plays for - 200, maybe 250?

When Kent named the Knott-Underwood Stand at Canterbury, both had been retired for 20-25 years, which seemed like a decent and dignified lapse of time.

Can we look forward in the next year or two to the Ben Stokes Riverside Ground, the Stuart Broad Trent Bridge Pavilion, the Gary Ballance Bogs at Headingley and the entire town of Chelmsford being renamed Cook's Manor?
Humour is not my forte, condescending, banal comments are...

Simon Kerrigan loaned out for 4 day cricket at Northamptonshire.

Wonder if he remains available to play T20 at Arundel later this week, to play for the side he has been captaining so far this season.

At present the Lancs 2nd XI are playing the Durham 2nd XI.

Hameed 0 from 11 balls and then rain.

James Taylor, the former Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and England batsman, will speak to the players when they gather in Loughborough on Monday, and the cricket will be watched by a number of England’s lead coaches as well as Young Lions selectors and scouts, raising the stakes for the players involved.

Karl Brown can't even get a red ball game for the 2s?
