Almost five years after his last professional match, when he helped England seal their Ashes triumph in 2009, the 36-year-old was announced in the Red Rose's squad for the clash at Edgbaston.

The all-rounder came out of retirement in May to play a part in the Twenty20 campaign but has yet to feature for the Lightning, who lie second in the North Division.

He has made a couple of appearances for the second XI side, even playing a 50-over match against Nottinghamshire where he thumped 40 off just 23 balls to help his side to victory.
