Glen Chapple has named a 15-man squad for Lancashire Lightning’s opening Vitality Blast fixture at home to Derbyshire Falcons.
Last season’s Blast semi-finalists have been boosted by the availability of Jos Buttler for the first six matches and the arrival of new overseas signing Finn Allen. Quick bowler Richard Gleeson has also been included following his recovery from a back injury.
Saqib Mahmood misses out with an abdominal strain.
