Former South Africa batsman Ashwell Prince is set to reverse his decision to retire from all formats of the game and represent Lancashire for another season.

Even though Lancashire were relegated to Division two, Prince was the club’s leading run-scorer in the recently concluded season.

“As a player, you feel partly responsible for going down,” he told the Manchester Evening News. “There’s still a bit of fight left in the old boy so I’d like to help the club get back to where they belong.”

Prince noted that at one point, he was certain he was going to be retiring at the end of the recent season. However, he changed his mind a little while later since he felt that there was “definitely some fight left”.

“When you arrive in April, having had five back-to-back seasons home and away, it’s quite taxing on the body,” Prince said. “At the start of the summer, I was quite tired. I thought, at the end of the season, that’s definitely going to be it. But I’d like to think there’s a bit of life left. There’s definitely some fight left.”
